I’m making some oval bandsaw boxes. The tops need a bit of decoration. They are flat ovals, ranging in size from around 3×5 to 8×12.
Option one would be to put in some grooves/lines that echo the exterior shape. The first thing that springs to mind is a handheld router with an edge guide. But, (1) I don’t have one and (2) I wonder if the edge guide could really do a good job of hugging the edge to produce a shape that precisely echoes the exterior.
What would be the hand tool equivalent?
I’d also like to explore having “rays” that start at the very center of the oval and radiate out to the edges. Is that possible? What tool would I use?
