Default greetings-old woodworker with a router question

Greetings. I have been a woodworker for many years, making mainly jewelry/keepsake boxes from exotic hardwoods, clocks, furniture pieces, etc. I have the following tools in my workshop: table saw, bandsaw, scroll saw, mortise machine, thickness planer, thickness sander, oscillating sander table, drill press, router table, etc. I joined this forum hoping someone could point me to a woodworking solution that , I think, would involve a router. Making a tobacco pipe stand and looking for a description of how the egg-shaped concaves are made for the bowl of a pipe to rest (attached photo). Anyone have any insight, link to a jig, link to appropriate router bit they'd be willing to share? (Don't want a flat botton in the convcave, need the bottom shaped like an egg.) Thanks for any advice. Regards-Super Dave

Hi Dave

I would suggest using the bit below with a taper lift jig that you can make on the band saw, that's to say the jig would lift the plunge router up and out of the end of the pass and using the base of the router for a guide in a template box.

1pc 1/2" SH 1" Dia. Plunging Ball End Router Bit | eBay

You can get the Plunging Ball End Router Bit up to 1 1/2" diam.

Thanks for the reply. I am trying to picture a taper lift jig. Is this what was used as described and shown in the "tapered flute" thread? (remove extra spaces and then cut and paste into the url window in your browser: http: // www . finehomebuilding.com/how-to/departments/master-carpenter/router-jig-for-cutting-tapered-flutes . aspx)

If so, then we're talking about 1.) building a MDF table with stop blocks to secure the stock material, the ramps and a stop to prevent the router from traveling further than the deepest part of the the teardrop-shaped concave cut; 2.) a plywood plate attached to the router with guideblocks on the underside of the plate to follow the sides of the stock material; 3.) ramps cut from a PVC sheet and attached to the mdf table spaced so the outer edges match to outside dimensions of the stock material; 4.) either a horizontal crown molding bit or a large plunging ball end bit. Then make several passes until the final depth is achieved. Is that what you recommended?
