Red face Is there one bit or two

Hello, I'm a new comer to your forum with a few questions. I have been trying to figure out if the lath on the top of a wall clock I am putting with is made with one bit or two. I have several folks I know that do woodworking and no one has given me an answer. My router will only handle 1/4" shaft bits.

I found your forum by accident, but I think I'm glad I did. Thank you for any help you provide.

Wayne

welcome to the forums Wayne...
the answer is both... plus one..

1 single cove bit done in 2 cuts...
the small cove is cut 1st..
the piece is flipped end for end and rotated on it's long axis 90° for the 2nd cut...
and then finished w/ the plus one bit...

or a single profiled bit was used.. and there are many...
all ya gotta do is find it...
plus another one of course..

or 2 bits.. plus one
1 each cove bit and one each core box bit or ball end bit...

the plus one is a round over bit for the light edge radius...

here.. look this PDF over and you'll get the idea......

Some furniture manufacturers would have the bit made for them if they were doing a production run using that molding but it can easily be done in two passes. It's hard to tell if both curves are the same radius. If they are you only need one bit. If they are different then you need two. Those profiles are some of the cheapest bits you can buy. If you should get lucky and find a bit that will do both curves at once it won't be cheap. It would be considered an architectural molding bit and likely run you $100 plus.

There are two types of profiles that will make those curves. One is cove bits which usually are guided by an integral bearing. The other is round nose bits which you need an edge guide for or to use them in a router table with fence.

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.

and don't forget the round over...
size the radii from the middle of the molding and not the end..
fuzzies are your option..

I usually sand or scrape round overs that small. Usually that's faster that getting a bit set up and normally you have to sand a little after anyway.

Thank you gentlemen for getting back to me. I must admit that Stick you had me a bit confused with the 2 plus one, but I believe I understand. Sorry the pictures were a bit sideways. On my computer they were ok. And I think I'll leave the fuzzies off the final product. Take care and be careful. Wayne
