Default How is this made?

Any idea how this was cut was made? Since the post is built up with 5/4 stick around a 4x4 the edge treatment must have been done after the post was built. I can guess that the bevel was probably made with a 45 degree bit but how was the transition to the curved part made?

I have problems like that too.

Is that a wood post, it has the appearance in my eyes as a concrete column. I have no idea how they were made other than by hand,they seem to have a curve rather than a flat chamfer.

Band saw would do it, or a router and then a band saw or some sort of hand saw.

Lay a corner into a 90 degree cradle and cut most of the 45 degree cut, reverse it and cut the other half. Then use the band saw to cut a nice curve, while still in the cradle. In the field it could be done with a sabre saw, but there's less repeatability that way. Use a pattern to mark it up. The give away is the straight cut at the transition from the 45 cut to the curve.

Probably a job for an apprentice.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

A skil saw can go to 45 degrees ,and have a guide air nailed to the post . My other though was doing it the hard way with a router . Build a sled for the router that attaches to a 45 degree angle

That profiles is called a lamb tongue ( I usually cut the 45 with a routr and finish with a hand chisel )

The video shows making a double tongue your profile is a single tongue if you practice with a sharp chisel you can learn to make that single tongue pretty quickly

I was able to find a video showing how to hand cut lambs tongue

The post IS resting in a cradle. That was 12 minutes per lambs tongue, that's almost an hour per set of 4. At say $50 an hour, that going to be $80 in labor, plus whatever material. I think this could easily be done with a band saw, and done much faster. Unless, of course, you have a premium customer, or an appreciative wife, or just love hand work.

The cradle will hold the angle, the band saw blade set at 90 will cut the 45.
