Using a router table as a table saw replacement
Dec 26th, 2012 at 1:52pm
 
Santa brought me a new router and table for his visitation yesterday.
I am wondering, since I do not have a table saw (that is usable) and want to try staved vessels; has anyone used router bits like these: Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register to form the staved shape or do I need to get the appropriate angled bits?
I may just get one of the 12 sided bits and give it a go. I am thinking of using a pattern bit and a straight edge to replace the table saw for straight 90* sides. Lordy I wish I had more space.

Those are for fitting a square corner of one piece into the groove cut in the end of the cut piece.  They will leave irregular vertical lines at the joint after you turn.

Eagle America  (I believe) sells router bits for stave cutting. Anywhere from 8 up 24 or 32 staves. Check their website.

I think you guys are talking about Birdsmouth bits.
Yes these can be used to make a circle, but as Jim mentionedJimQuarles wrote on Dec 26th, 2012 at 2:06pm:

Any chamfer bit will do the job. These can be found at many angles for the number of staves you are looking for.
