 Questions about a chip rail have been asked and this is our explanation.

After the new owners took over the DS.com site there was a conversion of the site to create the present day look. Also, we hired a technician to help us test each page and look for glitches, dead links, and antiquated email address. The person who supplied the information for the table plans had a personal email address that was no longer valid. The old email address has been deleted. There is no way to know who this person was and the part about the chip rail maybe should be eliminated. My guess is that the tech guy did not do this because his job was to fix things like broken links, remove dead links and he did not have authority to make copy changes. 

The Dice Coach sells a throwing station with a chip rail. It is made from a single piece of wood 4.5 inches wide by inch. Looks like mahogany or some dark wood without knots. The grooves for the chips appear to be milled with a half moon bit. Perhaps a router table was used. Then the piece of wood was pushed through the router to mill the grooves, one side and then the other. With the station I have and describe here, the chip rail is not very functional and the rail needs to be milled deeper. I am suggesting wood for the rail perhaps 1 inch to 1.5 inches in thickness. This is my best guess and attempt for a suggestion. I do not know if the table plans you have are for curved corners. What I described would work okay for square corners.  

Also, perhaps the bit was held in a drill press with a fence and the board pushed through twice. 

These are my suggestion and limited to my knowledge of woodworking. Hope that it is of some help to you.
