ocZcc ~ Thank you... now if I only had access to your workshop...*hint-hint*
Seriously though. Other than the Druid, I don't think I have seen any other workshops around these parts thats sets my modding-erogenous zone aflame quite like yours.
Thanks for the nod. McStuff. I am trying to use some subtle carpentry techniques for an added effect which is Dark, or Gothic in nature.
alas... I doubt that these feet will be lite-up. I am making a second set for future use that will get the LED lighting I made for these.
In truth, it did not look the way I had imagined. I was able to compromise with a "frosted" clear-layer of acrylic, but that only looked good in the dark. When viewed in plain-light... well... it was less than satisfying.
Router: I use a home-made router table:
The router that I use is a Bosch hand-held
I move the work over the bit.
I think that you are working with this (?):
Indeed, that is a difficult roundover bit to work with. In order to avoid the dreaded "ridge" on a double bull-nose takes another piece of acrlylic layered on top to provide surface area for the non-bearing giude (Thank you CyberD)
, or a vertical rip-fence (Thank you CattleRustler via CyberD)
. The latter may be too tedious with such a small bit (at least that is what I discovered).
It is the limitations of the tool, not you.
The same goes for the buffing capabilities of the Dremel: Good for small, hard to reach areas, but less than desireable for open edges and spaces... but not to disuade you; it will get the job done, but a finer sanding job is in order.
Ice! Hooray for Arts & Crafts!

Thanks for saying so. Yah... I liked the 50/50 balance better. It also puts the seam midway through the arc of the ogee. When viewed up close the angle of the lamination makes the surface look like the pieces flow into one-another... kinda neat.

For the most part. The routing is done with the... uh.. router, and the tablesaw cuts large panels to size.
