    Does anyone use one in the field?

    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.

    I’ve used one a few times when trying to match the original stool profile. 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.

    Thanks that looks like the profile. 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…

    Is the stool and sill the same thing? Or does the stool go under the sill and sometimes called the skirt?

    if your using a stool profile bit without a bearing pretty sure you have to use a router table.. its a larger profile which needs the more powerful router

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    Yes you really need a router table for that kind of bit. I’d be hesitant using a edge guide.

    Thanks I book marked it. 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.
