Default scallops

what type of bit do I need to make scallops around the edges of a project? I've got several bits, but have never done scallops. I've been commissioned to do a project for a Ranch, & I was thinkin' the scallops would look the best. Any help would be appreciated.

I'd stay away from using a router and use a drum sander in a drill! Practice on a piece of scrap first. It will give you the rustic look I think your customer is looking for. Start with course and stop wiith whatever gives the desired effect.

Here's a simple way to do the scallops using a 45 chamfer bit with a bearing.

Thanks Oliver, he makes it look easy, I could find a way to screw it up guaranteed, I will have to try that.

I enjoyed the video. Here is how I made a couple of different scallops.
