Making a round table top from Mfc8/29
I will be making some round table tops for my client and he wants to use Mdf Mfc. So my question is how do I cut a round table top without the mfc chipping. I am thinking of using a plunge router but I don't know if it will be smooth.
Use a down cut spiral bit and you should get smooth edges.
Thanks Bill will try that.
Pardon my ignorance, but what is this Mdf Mfc of which you speak?
mfc is another term for melamine.
I'm guessing MFC is Melamine (on a) Fiberboard Core, i.e. MDL MDF - medium density laminate (VS HPL/high pressure laminate and MDO/medium density overlay) on medium density fiberboard).
I take two passes, the first is an oversize/rough cut (+ 1/16-1/8"), e.g. a 3/8" single flute bit followed by a 1/2" two flute (both straight).
I also suggest Use a down cut spiral bit.
