Okay.Here's the problem. A graceful curving swan neck, cut from nice clear pine, 20" from base to top of head. Cut on jig saw and I want to turn (roundover) edges. I've watched Rick n'Bob do it a million times on the table, using the "safety pin" etc. but I have never done it. My Rockler table insert has no provision for a pin, so I will try a pointed stick clamped in place. If I am standing in front of my table and my bit is turning clockwise, it will be coming toward me on the right hand side of cut out. So where does safety pin go? Can I round the entire shape in this manner; it gets a little "curvy" up around the head and bill. IS there a better way. I know I can ALWAYS sand the edges, but they are never as nice an uniform. All suggestions will be appreciated.
