Having made the window sills for my windows what is the best router bit to use to finish the window sills? I am using 3/4" pine. Thanks.

Hi finisher,
Use a 3/8" rounding over bit. Set it so that it cuts almost half way so that there is bearing in the center of the bit if it has a bearing stop (this is the part of the bit that stops at the edge of the wood when cutting and most rounding over bits have one). If you are using a router in a table with a fence you can go to the exact center......MJH
