If I want to put a bullnose or at least a partial bullnose (maybe with a small fillet on the top and bottom) along the edge of a five foot length of 1x6 oak, and if I want to do this using a roundover bit instead of a bullnose bit, can anyone tell me how to do this? If I use a roundover bit with a bearing to follow the edge, how can I avoid the problem that will occur when I have no "edge" for the bearing to follow, once I turn the piece upside down to roundover the other side?
I donít think that I can do this with an actual bullnose bit. I have a router table but no router for it yet, and the old Craftsman router that I do have wonít fit the router table, so I will have to do this operation by hand. I realize that Iím a router newbie, but I donít think that thereís any way to use a bullnose bit without a router table. If thatís correct, Iím stuck with trying to do it by using a roundover bit and rounding over both sides.
Any help will be appreciated.
