cabriole leg router jig?


Recommended Posts

i've been making some cabriole legs for a nightstand,

my sister is getting for christmas.

the bandsaw part was fine but, the tiring sanding wasn't.

so i got to thinking, howbout making a router jig.

this may solve some sanding issues.

but making a usable design was not all that easy.

any one hear or seen something like this.

or have any good tips, pointers on the subject?

thanks in advance :) Merry christmas, and to all a happy new year.

wish you all lots of time in the shop.

I would vote for the spokeshave or scraper on a one off. I would worry about tear out with gnarly wood and a router. That's a big dip into the wood on those cabriole legs. If you use a router, be careful about grain and feed direction. Ideally, the jig could reference so opposing faces can alternately be down on the router table, or you need both a pattern bit and a flush trim bit and a way to accurately switch the pattern to the other side of the workpieces.
