A Quick Way to Rout Curved

Corners

When shaping the corners of tabletops or shelves, I find that I can do the work quickly and accurately on a router table using a plywood template and a flush-trim router bit. The fences on the template allow for quick, clamp-free registration against the workpiece.

Using V^'-thick hardwood plywood, cut your pattern to the desired shape using a jigsaw or band saw. If necessary, smooth the profile with a file or a power sander. Attach two fences as shown below, making sure to keep them back from each end of the curve

by a couple of inches so they don't impede the travel of the bit.

To shape the corners of your workpiece, first use the template to trace the curve onto the workpiece, then cut to within V8" of the line using a jigsaw or band saw. Install a flush-trim bit with a shank-mounted bearing and adjust the height of the bit so the bearing contacts

the template. Holding the workpiece firmly against the template fences, trim the corner to shape, making sure to move the workpiece against the rotation of the bit.
