Sorry, no pics yet.
I am building a new computer desk and shelving for the wife. I had some custom formica countertops made that I am eding with 3/4” red oak to match some existing built ins. I just got a new router (2 1/4hp Porter Cable) from the wife for Christmas and was attempting to use a flush cutting bit to trim the red oak to the top. I already had finished the desk top with a hand plane, but was very nervious the whole time about cutting into the formica. I tried using the router, but found it was very hard to hold level on the red oak and run the bearing along the counter top. This is for the shelving, so the top is only 3/4” thick.
What methods have you used for holding a router level on a thin piece of edging to flush the edging with a countertop before? (top is not yet installed, so it can be moved around the shop)
