Now what tool am I supose to use to accomplish this? Should I just use a Jigsaw and start from a corner and then curve in, cutting piece by piece until I am able to get all the right angle to cut the 6 inch side. Or should I be using a router for this. I am confused due to the fact that I do not know for certain which method is the most appropriate. I know this is pretty basic but this is my first attempt and I am not sure exactly what to expect.
I would use a circular saw, cut the edges of your 2x6 then make cuts every 1/8th in between. Breakout the pieces clean it up with a sharp chisel. This technique \"chinese chiseling\" will give you the best results.
Have you completed the bench? What technique did you use?
