How can I create this piece?


Painted pvc is fine indoors---

The pointed round over bit will do what you want----I would suggest using a router table if you have one or could make one--that cut could end up looking shaky of hand held---

Great. There is no way I would try and do this handheld

http://www.amazon.com/Magnate-Point-...+roundover+bit

Is this a good bit or is the one in the previous link going to give me a smoother better cut? I can get this in 2 days . Do you think 3/8" radius is the appropriate radius/depth for the rounded flute?

Thank you.

Also, I would still like to know how that shaper works. I have never encountered one.

I would suggest a roundover bit with a bearing. You can use it without a fence that way, and also hand-held.

This is the most used bit in my shop.

Secondly, you need a "bullet" type bit for the flutes. It won't have a bearing, so you'll need a table with a fence on it. Just take a 4' piece of wood and cut a half circle out in the middle and use this as your fence. If you want a flute 1 1/2" in, then set your fence at 1 1/2" and go to town.

That shaper goes into a table saw---a set of cutters (3 pcs.) are installed in the shaper head--

After adjusting the height---the board is passed over the shaper blades----it's the best way to add complicated shapes to the face of a flat board---

I use it for making bead board----fluted details in base moldings and other long details---

I don't use it often--but I find that there is nothing better at the price for certain work.

A bit with a bearing--two kinds---bearing on the shaft---used to ride on a template---usually a straight cutter--

Bottom bearing----used for shaping the edge of a board with the bearing rubbing against the work piece---

You are trying to add shapes into the face of a board---so no bearing at all is best---

You want the router mounted upside down in a table---adjusting the fence to position the cut exactly where you want it in the face of the board--

Feather board should be used to push the work piece against the fence---and another mounted to the fence to keep the work snug to the table---

Also use a push block ----routers need a great deal of respect-----a router injury can not be repaired----what ever body part that hits the blade is simply gone for good.

No need, or reason, for a bearing router bit, shaper, router table, etc, etc...


When I made my fluted trim (using chair rail backer board), I simply built a jig with a guide for each pass. This can, and should, be done in the same manner, as it's really a simple project.

The jig consisted of:

1. One large sheet of plywood (my table).

2. Three pieces of backer board for the router to ride on (the middle one gets routed).

3. My aluminum guide bar clamped in position for each run.

4. A pice of wood block as a stop at the end of each run.

5. My trusty plunge router.


Really guys, a router table isn't the best choice for this unless you want the grooves to go all the way to the end of you stock. And a shaper is WAY overkill, as well as presenting the same issue with where the grooves stop.

Do you want the grooves to go all the way, or do you want them to stop just before the end of the stock so there's no gap when it junctions with the baseboard and crown.

Make's a lot of difference.
