Topic tags/keywords: jig router milling

I have a welcome center desk to build for my church. I could make it with regular box construction and the cover it with laminate, but I would prefer to stain it. I would like to have a lock miter joint for the corners and I have used it on small items, but we are looking a one sheet that is 42” x 60” and a return of 24”. Could a fence be attached to a router base to guide the lock miter bit?

Routing flat isn’t a problem, but routing on the edge might be unlless you build a right angle fence for your router base. ............. Jerry (in Tucson)

A straight edge guide that the base rides against might work, but I would want to test it first.
