I’m building an Arts & Crafts style desk and, afetr reading “Stickley-Style Legs” in an old (1997) issure of Fine Woodworking by Patrick nelson, I decided that using a lick miter bit to mill the legs would be the way to go. I purchased a bit on ebay (probably most of the problem) ans set up the fixtures to mill the pieces. The results were terrible. I tried both mdf and ash blanks to match the actual oak pieces and got profiles that would not, in any way match.
Now the quandry. If I but a good bit (recommendations appreciated), can I expect to make this work? Thanks for any help that you can offer.
