OK the frame of the small table was my next bling job
I think I spent more time making a template than what the actual profiling work took
first up I had to educate myself on just what ellipses were, so spent the precious evening with graph paper and pencil attempting to scale the same profile for both lengths. first up I made a plywood template and once I was happy with that made a router bit profile template
and just in case you happened to notice no I didn't use the spindle sander with the tool still attached. A lot of fiddling to get it to a standard i was happy with. the template was double sided for convenience. Next was the working version. this produced to following results
A finish with a round over bit will be next and its ready for a glue up.
