Chamfer Conundrum

I am working on a foot for a trestle table, I want to add a chamfer along the two top edges, but I also want the chamfer to end about mid-way along the top of the foot where the leg will attach.

 

Being fairly new to SE I not sure how to create the end the chamfer so that it represents the way it will look when the chamfer is created using a router, the end of the chamfer should be a small tapering radius ending in a point.

 

I have attached .pdf of the foot to show where I am stuck, you can see the the chamfer terminates in a squared-off fashion.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi there,

 

I think the easiest way would be to allow the chamfer to run the entire edge, then make a protrusion to replace local the area for the leg landing...use a vaiable radius fillet to get your router blend.

The method Sean used is no doubt the easiest.

Another approach would be to use a derived curved and a triangular cross-section sketch used to create a swept cutout. This may not need adding material after the cutout but extra steps will be required to create the derived curve. The fillet at end is of regular type.
