The bit being used here is a Whiteside Model UDC9112 Spiral Combination 1/2" SH X 7/8" D X 1-1/8"CL. It is really pricy, and a real workhorse!

Yoda stocks start as a stack of poplar 6/4 boards. Rip them square, and then take the to the jig to the right to to cut the taper on four sides.

The last step is round over the edges and route a groove with a core box bit. A little sanding and they are ready for campers!
