Little Bits

The other router bit I ordered came today, and, well, it’s a little under sized. I haven’t decided yet whether I should return it and keep looking or just say that this is as good as it gets.

I briefly toyed with the idea of a custom router bit, but from what I can tell the price is a little high for the limited amount of stock I need. One place started at $160 plus a drafting fee of $35 to $75 dollars. Another place did not list prices, but did say there was a 10 bit minimum. That is a lifetime supple for me.

Whether I keep this one or keep looking, I don’t see any custom router bits in my future. Hopefully I can get the floor done this weekend and then start on the baseboards.

You should cut a test piece and take photos of it and post here :) Looks like a close match to me.

As long as you don't have to meet any existing trim, I don't see a problem. It is a smaller room, I'm sure nobody would know the difference.
