Default Routing Edge on an Insider Corner

Hi.. I would like to replicate the profile on the attached cross...

I am fairly new at the router table, and I have only routed profiles using the fence on the table.

The profile on the cross has an inside corner that would seemingly preclude the use of a fence.

What Bit do I use and How do i replicate the profile on the router table with or without a fence.

Thanks in advance

welcome to the forums N/A...

that looks to be a bearing guided cove bit done free hand...
that's a guess...
a picture of the profile (end view) would be very helpful and put an end to the guess work......

as for this issue...

You could do it on a table if you removed the fence.

While I agree that you COULD do it that way, this is a small work piece and I would caution a "fairly new at this" person about that operation. You would have your hands pretty close to the bit in an operation that changes direction often.
I would suggest using the router freehand with a piloted bit as others have mentioned, with the workpiece secured to the bench or a larger piece of wood for stability and safety.
Just my $0.02.

I was also thinking that I could do on table w/o fence, but I have simply never done. ... and I do have concerns in regard to the small size of piece and proximity of my hands to bit and moving piece in right direction, etc. A video would help if anyone has a good link.

I wonder though... Did the creator of the project rout the edge of each piece separately before assembly using a stop block on the cross piece in order not to make a profile all the way across???

Is this a simple straight bit profile?

Anyone have thoughts on simply not worrying about stopping the edge profile at the intersection??

To get the perfect intersection, the easiest way to do it is assemble the cross first, then route the inside edge using a bearing guided bit. The safest way to do it will be to use a starting pin, and then pivot the stock into the cutter and onto the bearing. Practice with much bigger pieces first to get a feel for how it works. When you feed into the bit you want the side of the bit where the cutter is coming toward you, not away.

Use push blocks like these ones https://www.homedepot.com/p/POWERTEC...cMFw&gclsrc=ds to control your piece and keep your hands far away from the cutter. You could also screw on a piece of wood to the back and add a handle that way.

Good point Chris. You’d be okay until you got close to the end and then your hand would be to close. You’d have to stop and change grips multiple times to avoid that.
