I'm wondering how I could achieve a bevel along the edge of a table top where the angle changes smoothly along the way. See reference image attached of this same effect on a chopping board. I could do this manually but I'm sure someone has a smarter (and more repeatable) technique! Many thanks for any suggestions.
I'm willing to bet that this piece was done with a computer and a CNC machine of some kind. You need to change the tool (or work piece) cutter angle to get this effect.
There might be a Maker Space in your area that you can use for this.
But, unless you can mount a router in a multi-axis articulated arm and control it smoothly through a 3D space, a dedicated CNC machine and some simple coding is the way to go.
You could also grow old doing this with a spindle sander and a very steady hand.
