    Get a bit to make the outer 1/2". Make a jig to let you hand saw crosscuts the depth of the cut. Follow up with hand planes, a big rasp and sanders.

    I'm wondering how it will turn out, and specifically what scale and type of base you might build for a table with an edge profile as you have designed.

    Best of luck with the project.

    Edwin,

    Here is where I got so far. I think it looks good. I did the endgrain sides with a steeper plane.

    I'd have used my Makita cordless track saw or my Festool TS55EQ. This type of cut is easy-peasy & much safer than either router or table saw.

    Here's a setup I just used to cut 5" wide 24 chamfers for a conference table. It could also be used for complete tops on a smaller scale.

    If I could not use a table saw or router table I would probably use an adjustable rabbiting bit or a straight bit and straight edge in my router to remove the bulk of the waste and then finish up with a hand plane.

    Edwin,

    It's taken too long to get to this point, but here is the pre-glue, pre-tweak, pre-finish look. I like it.

    Looks great. I like it, also.

    Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.
