Inner Radius Design on Table

Hey there,

I recently saw a table and really loved a simple, but effective design aspect of it. There's a rounded corner that integrates into the legs. I've attached the images in the thread. Is this made with a special router bit?

kinda special ... but

Not really:http://www.ptreeusa.com/rtr_router_b...ts_chamfer.htm

The lines don't flow all that well in my opinion. There is no space allowed for the radius to begin or "lead in" as we call it in the Industrial Design profession. But overall it's a cool look and I do like it.:smile3:

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

So how do you use the chamfer bit to round the table corner?

I think you would need to use a shaper for that, but it is kind of hard to judge the actual size, it would be a cove bit like these, depending on the thickness of the top

Or something like this

But I think that table top looks like it is possibly 2-3 inches thick, you would probably need a custom grind
