thinking to myself and was wondering if it would be worthwhile to make ogee feet (6” wide) via a cnc router? I use sketchup regularly and have an ogee pattern I created, and was noticing that there is an add-in now sketchu-cam that will convert to g-code.

I make wine cabinets and was thinking this would spead production of the parts to make the feet. It might be easier to go the shaper router I guess.

Your answer depends on haw many wine cabinets you make. Not all things are possible to create efficiently with a cnc. You process may be faster without one.

A way to test your idea, is to find someone local who has a cnc. See if they will run it for you. this way you find out what is possible, the amount of time and the cost. Again depending on your volume of work, it make more sense to out source that part.

I do alot of cnc carving and if I understand you properly, I would think it would be faster to make a template for a table router (assuming you have one) and then rough cut the legs on a bandsaw and finish on the router. Unless your mass producing your wine cabinets, I think the cnc method would be a little overkill.

Thanks for the replies. I normally do them on the router table, but the number of passes are getting old. Plus the time required to finish them with sanding is getting old. I was hoping this profile could be done on the CNC and just let it go and run while I do other things. When I do them I could do multiples.
