Why do you want to squash a sandwich ? As someone that has had to rely or them for many years for lunch on site the last thing i would want is for it to be squashed !

Re: How to make finials?

Doug fir is a good timber , i might be tempted to use sapele .
These are indexed finials so making up something for the router would be how i would go about this one . I'm lucky enough to have the legacy ornamental mill but it would be easy enough to make a sled to run the router over the timber .

There are bargains to be had , you just need to keep an eye on ebay and let everyone know you are after machines . Also be willing to travel to collect them although you can get things put on a pallet for about £100 .

Re: Gothic arch architrave

Thinking more about this , to do an ogee architrave im going to have to support it on a curved sled aswell as a curved base . There is going to be very little timber once the moulding is cut and as its quite deep i think it will need two passes .
Thoughts ?
