|Table Saw Roundovers
Shaping an irregular roundover, like the one shown in
the photo below, is really an easy three-step process. With the profile traced
out on the end of the stock, I use a table saw to remove most of the waste, see
Steps 1 and 2. By tilting the blade, it's easy stay outside of the layout lines.
Then to remove the remaining waste
and refine the profile, I use a sanding block or hand plane, as you can see in
Starting on any edge with end grain to avoid tearout, tilt the saw blade to approximately
25° and make the first series of cuts.
