router bit choice for window stool


I am going to be insalling new window stools and would like some ideas on which type of router bit to use to put on the outer edge. I'm not looking for anything too fancy, I saw some bits a HF today but was unsure of the style to get. The wood will be painted white and probably 1x4 or 1x5 in size. Thanks in advance.

In my opinion you should use a thicker material for the stools. Use a 5/4 or 6/4 material, read (five quarter, six quarter). They will be about 1-1/16" and 1-5/16" thick materials.
Use a simple ogee bit in a 1/2" shank.

If you want something simple that will good I would go with a round over bit and run it top and bottom of the stool to make it a nosing.

I used a Bosch 1/2'' cut Roman ogee on 1x poplar then painted it white and it looks excellent.

I agree with jiju. Your trim under the sill will probably be a 399 or something shaped that will add detail to the look.

Errr, maybe different areas of the country, but around here we can buy three different sizes/styles of window stool. Just cut to length, and fit to window opening per se. I have three (3) to do next week on one house, dog chewed them up.

Re: router bit choice for window stool


Perhaps the OP has the type of window that comes set for just applying something like colonial casing all around....and wants to extend the bottom of the unit to come out and look like a sill?

Re: router bit choice for window stool


So long story being short, I googled that very question today....and came up with this thread.....and didn't pay attention to where it was from!!! But in answer to the question, help out....because what I wrote is exactly what a friend wants me to do......and I am thinking add an inch and a half rounded over piece of clear pine and biscuit join the thing in to the existing?? Other choices?? Can't just use a stock stool because the EXISTING trim piece where the window meets the existing sill is cut to a Roman ogee. Thanks
