Another absolute beauty Rob. I see that you are using lock miter joints. I’ve got the bits AND the setup blocks, but the setup is crazy difficult and my ends keep getting blown out. How do you manage it?

Jerry, I cant see where he used locking miter joints but I understand your issues. The setup usually just takes me a while of trial and error with scraps of the same thickness. for blowout, there are two choices that work 1. following with a scrap piece held tightly against the work piece, this moves blowout to the scrap 2. cutting your wood wide and trimming it down to remove the blown area. I usually go with option one, you can reuse the same scrap as long as you are doing the same cut and it will support the grain of the uncut area, clamping them together works well.

I cut my pieces oversized and I have a 90 degree plywood backer sled I use while milling the joint on the router table. And yes the setup is a pain in the butt .the other thing I have learned is that multiple passes taking small amount of material per pass really decreases the blow out issues at the ends, and yields a nicer joint.

Rob, thanks so much for the intel. I will try those techniques.
