Roundovers on the Table Saw

Shaping an irregular roundover, like the one shown in the photo, is not as difficult as you might think. Here's an easy three-step process for making smooth, clean roundovers using your table saw.

Step 1 - Tilt the saw blade to approximately 25° and position the workpiece vertically to make the first cut. Start on edges with end grain to avoid tearout.

Step 2 - Flip the workpiece around and place it flat on the table to make your second cut.
Step 3 - Sand or plane away the remaining waste to smooth out the roundover and complete the profile.
