    Re: Door Trim Question

    How many feet do you need? Im certain I have a 3/4 bullnose shaper cutter or one for my hussey that would make short work of this.

    Re: Door Trim Question

    If the piece that sticks out and is molded is 3/4 thick, you need a 3/8 round over bit or a 3/4 bullnose. If it's 1/2 thick, then a 1/4 round over or a 1/2 bullnose. The roundovers should work in a router with a 1/4 chuck. You can't push this sort of router very hard, however, or the bit will slip. But in softwood, even the 3/8 should be one pass. I wouldn't do the bullnose in a router without a 1/2 chuck. I think it will slip and ruin the wood. But with the right setup (featherboards are a good idea as has been mentioned) this should be simple. Almost takes longer to type the note than to make the molding. I'd put the bullnose piece on the other one with glue and brads or pin nails prior to cutting the miters. I also like to put at least one coat of finish on the wood before installing it.

    Re: Door Trim Question

    I don't think it was specifically mentioned, and it may be obvious, but if you use the roundover bit, be sure to use a fence and not rely on the bit's guide bearing. Careful setup of the fence will avoid/minimize either a peak or flat at the apex of the roundover.

    Re: Door Trim Question

    if I get a chance this weekend, I am going to try a test piece and see what happens. I have used the roundover bit before without an issues. But doing it on both sides, I think I am going to have to take my time and make sure the setup is right.

    Re: Door Trim Question

    You can remove the roundover bit bearing and use the router table fence to control the cut. Otherwise, as you know, the bearing will ride the slope of the first cut leaving a lopsided curve.
    Always be yourself because the people that matter don't mind, and the ones who mind, don't matter.
