Topic tags/keywords: question

I have a project that has some 1” x 2” x 3/4” pieces that I need to put a .25 radius edge on. What method would you use for this? I need a safe solution.

Round over first, then cut the parts to small size

Make a long strip of 1”x3/4” pieces, put the radius on the strip, then cut to 2” lengths.

In this blog I routed some 1/4” x 1/8” curved mouldings to half round by using double sided tape to attach them to a pattern piece. That same idea will work for you …... safely.

I rout small pieces held in my wooden hand clamps on the router table.

If possible, do what Bondo said. If you have to cut them down first., try it the way gfadvm suggested.

I use the double stick tape method; stick the pieces to a bigger piece of wood, clamp that down, and also double stick a scrap of the same thickness as the pieces to the bottom of the router plate so it doesn’t tip when routing.

I’ve done this quite a bit with no problems. Easy as brownies. :-)

And now I want brownies. :-p

Monte said exactly my thoughts. Stick with one of those 2 suggestions.

Every time I seen this done it was done as bondo described, roundover a larger piece than cut to size. Would be cheaper to as that 2x lumber is usually quite expensive and has ratty edges.

I would tend to suport “gfadvm”. But i would use A dremel router for small pieces.
