    Default Oak Arch Window trim

    I just installed an arch trim for a half round living room window. Wood is 3/4" oak. Overall dimensions are 21" tall x 42" wide. I had to machine the arch in two halves as my Shop table is 24 x 32. The extrude along centerline was the perfect modeling tool for this job. I did a rough cut with a 1/2" end mill and finishing cut with a 1/4" tapered round end mill.

    Excellent work Phil.
    Did you have to spend much time with finishing.

    Not really, I used a Beckwith coated 1/4" round nose bit. It did a great job.
    Thanks for the compliments.

    A great way to speed up the finishing sanding part of a job that has a lot of detail or contours is to use a brush sander. They can be very gentle and get into every nook and cranny. I have one mounted on my (otherwise little used) drill press.

    I have a Drillbrush https://www.drillbrush.com/ that worked very well. I used the small yellow brush.
