Default Hullo chaps

I did my sums and compared the milling and glazer quote for 60 metres of glazing bead plus 17 window cills all in a custom profile for my rotten Edwardian conservatory to the cost of tools ...
So I have a DeWalt 625 router, makita table and a Makta flipper saw plus a box of Trend bits from Ebay and a stack of wood. I turned them over 3 weekends - mostly swearing and learning - into my bead and cills saving 500 off the quote and having the tools still into the bargain.
I can't say enough how satisfying it is to turn out something real and solid when your day job is tapping away on a PC.
Anyway next is two long pieces of 100x20mm with 2 stopped flutes on the faces - any hints/tips on that ?
