Name this tune (rather, name this bit)

Hello,
First time post. Thanks to anyone that can offer assistance.
I've been asking around and no one seems to know how this profile is cut. Most agree that it's done with a table saw to get the bevel, but how is the curved section router'd (sp?).
If a 1/4 round is used, it won't be tangent with the bevel.
If a 1/2 round is used, it will over cut, into the bevel.
Anyone have any ideas?
Rick

Factory made, it was probably done on a shaper. It would cut the completely profile in one pass. Being plywood it would have to be carbide. It's possible it could have been done with a router. A person could spend a month searching all the router bits out there looking for that profile.

If you are only doing one, run a 1/4" radius on the face side and then cut the angle on a table saw and finish the rest of it with a sander or hand sand.

Thanks Steve. I was afraid I was going to get that answer. I was unrealistically optimistic that someone would know of a bit that was in between 1/4 round and a half round.

If I were doing that, it would be a 3 stage process. I'd probably go with a 5/8" radius roundover bit because it doesn't do a full radius on the top side. Then cut the bevel on the table saw. I would probably use my block plane to take down the corner on the under side to the required radius there, then sand smooth. Not too difficult if they are all straight edges.

name of that bit is "custom"


actually it can be cut with standard 1/4 roundovers. the bevel cut first. then with the roundover bit in a table mounted router, one pass with the top upside down, and the next pass with the material right side up held at an angle (bevel angle) to the table. radius diameters adjusted to get the best look. must use a fence.

I swear we just had someone looking for this bit a few days ago, and someone actually posted a link to a seller for it. I'll see if I can't dig up the thread and post it here

I think this is the thread:

Thank you! Very close indeed. I am a bit of a counter top newbie. Is there a way to use this type of bit (without a bearing) for edging a counter top? Think big pieces.. too big for a router table.

You can use the same bit in a handheld router

Glad someone dug up that thread
