Default Stop Chamfering 1.50" Spindles

I'm restoring our 1850 Victorian home. The side porch is currently being restored and I need to manufacture about 200 1.75" square spindles that have Each corner Stop chamfered with Lambs tongue. All the posts are being made from 2" poplar.

I have a shapers and routers, so I'm looking for some suggestions of how you would produce these items using those tools. Has one developed a jig, for their use, to manufacture a similar item?

I appreciate you thoughts,

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

This is what Lee Valley suggests but it seems very labor intensive Lee Valley Tools - Woodworking Newsletter

The bottom curve of the tongue I think I would try to do with a sanding drum, preferably on a spindle sander. That would be a one step process. The drum would cut it and finish it or use a coarse drum and the switch to a finish drum. The curve from the long chamfer to the ess in the tongue could possibly be done with an ovolo bit going cross ways. <strong>Industrial router bits</strong>-Ovolo router bits-CMT tools

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

This same property that I was referencing, also has a carriage house on it. The carriage house, as you might expect, was used to house carriages in a previous life and has an enclosed attic that contained almost 2000 bd ft of 8/4 sticked poplar. Most of the current spindles that I'm restoring are also made of poplar. So, I just decided to use it.

If you have a custom "Period" furniture maker close check with them for in-house made bits. One in Columbia SC has a machine like a key maker that they use to make bits with special profiles. With the right profile & a shop made angle jig that may work for production. Might cost too much but just a thought.
