Default lock miter uses

Hey All! I'm looking into lock miter possibilities for building the squares for box newel posts. The bases will be plywood and the neck or upper part will me solid, all in a variety of species. Before I spend the $$ on a good shaper, I'm wondering what success folks have had with a good variable speed 3hp router and table. I'm also wondering if anyone has found a lock miter bit for a table saw molding head, or if anyone has tried this method. I've used one for fluting columns and have gotten excellent results.

I have this bit in 3 sizes. I have used it for boxes, frames and some tricky joints. It works great one you have set it up and made an off cut of the joint so you can restup easily. I now have a better table and fence setup, but it still works perfectly, but not in plywood. You must have all your wood at a constant thickness.
