I’m ready to final-size the legs which means using the template I created awhile ago. I first traced the curve onto both sides of the workpiece. Then over to the bandsaw to remove the waste.
I try to cut about 1/16″ outside the lines so that there’s not too much material to remove with the router.
I clamped the template on top of the workpiece (and my bench). I used a 1″ pattern router bit (similar to this one) to ride against the template.
Since my leg is almost 2″ thick, the 1″ bit didn’t reach all the way across. Unfortunately I didn’t take a photo, but I flipped the workpiece over and finished it off with a flush trim bit that rode against the already-routed section.
Some sanding and scraping quickly blends across the two routed sections.
