@ Steber
I too thought it was sketchy of hell when I first heard of cove cutting on a table saw. But it is safe and efficient if you take your time and do about 1/16" at a time.

@ Captainoverspray
It took about 30 passes

@ Khkman22
All of Augusta National is a beautiful place

Very nice job on the cove. I've found it is a bit easier if your direction of feed is angled slightly to the blade. In other words, not perpendicular.

That said. You'll be proud to have buddies around a bar that you built yourself. You get extra points on your man card.

Yeah... definitely need to angle the approach to the blade. even with my shop vac running I was having to clean the dust from behind the blade after every pass. Maybe I just need a bigger shop vac system
