I want to build some boxes using a lock miter bit. I have the adjustments done and the corner match is clean and sharp. Here is my problem. I use a router sled to complete the first half of the joint and that works really well. The second piece is pushed through the router bit against the fence and on its edge. I can’t seem to keep the ‘on edge’ piece perfectly straight and flat for the entire cut. It is similar to a cut for the top and bottom of a raised panel door.
Since I’m dealing with the sides of a box, the pieces are much narrower than a cabinet door. What I am looking for a either a better method than push blocks and feather boards or maybe a jig of some type that would make the process easier and safer. A router table sled that works vertically instead of horizontally would seem to be ideal, unfortunately I don’t think they exist. A vertical mounted router table would work as well, but those aren’t cheap.
Has anyone run into this problem and come up with a solution?
