Milling coves at the table saw is a great way to get large, customized moldings in any species you need. But, if you use a standard saw blade, only the sharp corners of the teeth dig into the wood — and that can leave a ragged surface that takes a lot of sanding to clean up. I use a different cutter: my table saw molding head with three 1″ fluted blades. It mills coves much more smoothly, and I estimate that it reduces the final sanding effort by half or even 75 percent. It’s definitely the better choice for me!
