By repeating this operation, and by altering the angle at which the tool is held, a radius
will be produced. It is essential that the blade must be set to give a very fine shaving
as the cut is on the endgrain. A thick shaving would result in chatter.
End Rounder Used to Radius the Foot of a Chair Leg with the Wood Rotating
The End Rounder can also be used to produce a chamfer on the end of cylindrical lengths. A small chamfer
can be achieved on tenons for seat rails or stretchers, enabling easier entry into drilled holes in
round chair legs. The end rounder is cupped in one hand and the timber to be worked is located at an angle
against the brass guide and rotated with the other hand against the blade.
