Demonstrating on a tapered display case, George Vondriska teaches you why you should always make downhill cuts when doing a taper for a woodworking project to optimize the surface finish of the edge. He discusses which router bits you should use, and then shows you the expert woodworking techniques you’ll need to utilize to make the downhill cut.
