    How would you do this?

    I am in the middle of making a new Bo staff for my son. I laminated the wood pieces, glued them together to form a 1x1x70" laminated piece. I then used a 1/2" roundover bit in the router table to get it almost round. My question is the Bo needs to taper from 1" in the middle to 5/8 inch at the...
