George Vondriska teaches you how to use a bowl and tray bit on a handheld router to dish out an oak stool seat so that it is more comfortable than if you left it flat. He walks you step by step through the process, showing you how to properly set your depth of cut and use various patterns to lay out and make the cuts at different depths.

    Great video! I’ll try this technique on my next stool project. Could the same idea (with non-circular templates) be used to create a contoured dining chair seat?

      Yep, create a different shaped template and you use it to dish out a chair seat.
