Default Into, and what bit do i need for this shape

Hi

My name is Saf and I've recently got the bug to do wood work,

I bought my first router table and router, after research and bit a luck I got myself a

Charnwood Router Table Model No. W015
and
Triton 2000w Plunge Router Model no. TRB001

Can you please have a look at this picture, and tell me what router bit to use.

A. would i have to use 2 bits for this a square and then one with an angle, is that possible. the angle would be about 11-15%

B. i think i got this one now by using a dove tail router bit i can get this shape.

Its "A" that I'm struggling with.

Picture 2 shows you what I'm trying to achieve the glass is at angle

Thank you

Welcome to the forum, Saf.

You could make that slot with a straight cutter and a chamfer cutter.

Personally, I feel that the slot, as shown, will not provide support for the front edgeof the glass.

Can you do an angled slot with a table saw?

thanks for the reply

The angle shown is to wide,

If you had to do hold the glass in place and provide support to the glass,

what angle would you recommend and what router bit ?

So use a straight cutter and a chamfer cutter say 11% angle

This is how I would do it, a bit slightly larger dia. than the glass thickness in a tilting base on my trim router. The wood is then ripped to width on the table saw. This would be an especially fast method for production runs, long boards slotted, ripped to width then cut to length. Several old trim routers have a tilting base as an accessory as shown on this one which I recently sold.

I would either go with Harry's method or a table saw with a good dado set in it.You can't go too much angle on the groove or the torque from the weight of the glass might snap off the lip of wood holding it in place.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Hi

I don't see what the big deal is, make one pass with the table saw then make one more pass with the blade set at 15 deg..

I would use a dado set just a bit wider than the glass is thick and cut it at a10 degree angle.
