I looked under the rewards and didn’t see the specific style I’m looking for. It’s a combined round over with convex underside. When I do window trim I would prefer to router the returns of the sill/stool over mitering. Even if it’s across the grain. A little sand paper works fine. I would have to clamp down an edge guide since there is no possibility of a bearing.

It works out pretty well with the edge guide that pairs with my MC23 Bosch router. Because of the lack of a bearing, I generally use a roundover bit though.

I’m sure a clamp and a speed square would easily do the trick.

I’m sure a clamp and a speed square would easily do the trick. A router table would be my preference, but that’s not very practical for site work! Does your router have an edge guide? I’m not following how a speed square would work on the front edge of the stool… Jon P.

Or does the stool go under the sill and sometimes called the skirt? Dirty A Working Pro since 1988! Member since January 26, 2013.

I’d be hesitant using a edge guide. Mark E.

I use this profile with 5/4 so I will check which one. Such a small swipe on each piece but adds a quality outcome.
