Such an excellent tutorial.   :bigup:

I just made asset of hedge guts and they rock!  The tutorial was just the ticket to help me get some method to the madness and crank them out.  It also was a great starting point for doing flute guts.  One step closer to finishing up my St. Charles entries... :beer:

Thanks!
Doug

Can anyone help me with what types of bits are used for this? I'm not real familiar with specific names of bits. I'd like to give this a shot.  Thanks Greg

Everybody does their own thing, but for me I use a router with table and fence.  I use a 3/8" carbide tipped cove bit for flutes, and a 7/16" carbide tipped cove bit for the short-reeds.  The 7/16" is ground down from a 1/2" bit.
I also use my shaper, table and fence to cut 1/4" slots using a wing cutter for my long-reeds.

I use 3/8" and 7/16" round nose end mills. I like the 4 flute cutters the best, but I've used 2 flute cutters with good results as well. I got mine from ENCO, and they were the cheaper chinese versions.
