Ra­diussed Trim

Popular Woodworking - - William & Mary Table -

24 I be­gan the cre­ation of the ra­diussed trim at the bot­tom of the apron by milling some 5/8 x 3/4 stock. I then cut the ma­te­rial to length and marked the flush point on ei­ther end. Af­ter es­tab­lish­ing some guide­lines, I roughed in the trim ra­dius us­ing a block plane.

25 Here you can see the flush line of the end grain, as well as the guide­lines and the rough plane work. Each trim piece is then fin­ished with a rasp and sand­pa­per.

26 The ta­per on each end of each trim piece was cut with a chisel.

27 The glued trim pieces were then in­stalled by hold­ing them in place for a slow 60 count, giv­ing the glue time to grab. (This can’t be done if the back of the trim piece is bowed or twisted.)
