Topic tags/keywords: question maple router milling

He all I have a quick question about routing edge profiles. I have some box trays that are already assembled and decided it would be a nice touch to soften the edges by routing a small chamfer on them. Since they are already assembled wouldn’t the router be unable to profile the inside corners? Meaning I would have to finish the inside corners by hand with a file?

You can finish the inside with a sharp chisel.

Ahhh I knew there was a better way than filing. It sound like a chisel is the answer.

Just don’t try to take it all off at once as it will likely split off more than you want.
