One last molding to mill. I install this ogee bit in the router table and I align the fence barely in front of the bearing. Used in the router table, the bearing should not touch the workpiece. Since the expected life of bearings counts in hours, ideally the bearing should be temporarily removed. It looks like lazyness is gaining on me!
As usual, I make a test cut with the same material that I will use to make the molding.
Since the board is quite large and wide, these garden gloves will ease feeding it on the cutter.
After a first pass at the router table, I rip one length of the molding at the tablesaw and get back to the router table for a second pass. It would be too hazardous to mill such narrow pieces at the router table.
Two such long moldings will be enough to complete the project.
Another long sanding session in sight!
They are ready to be cut and installed.
