Create Decorative Profiles
Kreg Tool Tips: Routing by
Kreg Tool Company
If you've ever admired the decorative edge on a table top, picture frame or cabinet door, you may have wished that you could dress up your projects the same way. If you're just starting out, you might've thought it would be hard to create those decorative profiles. The process is actually easy if you have a router. In fact, this is pretty much what a router was originally designed to do.
You’ll find dozens of decorative profile router bits available, so all you have to do is select one that you like. Routing the profile is easy because these bits have a bearing that follows the edge of your workpiece as you rout. You can create profiles using your router hand-held, which is handy for large projects like a table top. If you’re working with smaller pieces, such as a frame or a drawer front, you can create the profile with your router mounted in a router table, such as the Kreg Precision Benchtop Router Table.
