    hey gents

    [​IMG]

    So I’m going to try & imitate the 45 degree horn bevels from this ran on my next project

    Is there an ‘trick’ to it or a jig/template I could make or do I just draw the lines on my wood & go for it with the router..

    The transition between the bevels & the edges of the horns are so tidy!
    Any advice fir a novice appreciated

    I just use a 45 degree guided router bit.

    It's dead easy to get a smooth transition in depth, too. Slowly approach the wood with the router running, moving forwards at the same time. Then ease the router away after the mid point of the curve.

    It's easier than you think, I had good results on my first practice go, and I'm a beginner too. Do a few practices first and clamp the piece down tightly!
