Recently I’ve been seeing a lot of really nifty waterfall tables and counters made with wood (either with one piece or a glue-up of several pieces). I know most of these are assembled simply by doing very accurate mitre joints. However, at the moment, I don’t own a big mitre saw – in terms of cutting tools I’m limited to a portable circular saw. I think it can be adjusted to do mitre cuts, but I’m rather nervous about doing something that needs to be so exact with it.

I will be getting a router within the next few weeks, and I’m wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a bit that could possibly do this job better than my circular saw? I don’t know a whole ton about routers, but it seems to me that there might be something that could do the trick….

Glue bit or lock mitre bit.

Don’t forget cauls when claping (sp) the glue-up.

......caul? Oh dear. And all this time I’ve been doing glue-ups without even knowing what that is.

Have your say...
