Default Do I use guide bushings or ?

Ok I'm going to try to explain what I'm doing.

My stock is 2"x15" and down the middle will be an elongated "S". One side of the "S" will be white and the other will be black (not really, just painting a mental picture). Now I need the black side to be 1/4" below the white, and along the "S" will be a
1/4" cove.

Now my question is, should I use a guide bushing and templet, with a 1/4" core box bit and skis, or a bowl bit with a bearing and a templet with skis? And would I use the same bit to remove all of the remaining black side? I am willing to do it eather way I just don't know what is the best.

Thanks
Nick

Hi Nick.

I have not seen a 1/4" bowl cutter, so I would go with the 1/4" core box bit.

That sounds like one of those jobs you try with scrap first.

I agree with using scrap first. But what method should be used, guide bushings or bearing bits?

Thanks
Nick

Nick I think I'd go with a template and bowl cutter with bearing like the one in Bj's link. The bowl cutter will give you a flat bottom while cutting the cove you want on the BLACK side.

Plus the bit can be used to make the template with just about any bowl or any candy dish..

Template and guide (bushing) without any doubt.
