I might have a job building a 3-drawer nightstand with ogee bracket feet that is a copy of an existing piece in the client’s home. The feet are made from three pieces each, mitered at 22.5 degrees, to give a 45 degree face at the corner.
I always see people cut the cove of the ogee on a tablesaw, taking out waste bit by bit, cleaning it up, then cutting the side profile with a bandsaw at a 45 degree bevel and assembling. Couldn’t one just cut the cove on a bandsaw with the stock on end (grain running horizontal), then lay it flat side down on a miter saw to cut the miters? Wouldn’t that miter cut just automatically give you the cove profile at the corner the same way it works when cutting outside corners on crown molding?
In my case, the pieces for the feet are short enough to run through a bandsaw on end to cut out the cove. Is the reason people often run it through a tablesaw due to their feet pieces being too long to run on end through a bandsaw?
Am I missing something?
Thanks for any advice.
