Fluting technique question


Recommended Posts

I'm going to be fluting some cherry for a door casing.

Was wondering if there is a preference or advantage to using a jig with the wood face-up vs doing it on a router table with the wood face-down.

I guess it depends on the situation. A template for a PC guide bushing will ensure repeatability and handle the stops. A friend of mine needed to make a single stopped flute centered on all four sides of four very narrow tapered legs. Only solution we found was to make a template, with fences on the sides so the legs fitted in like a globe.
