I have to rout licking miters on an 83” cabinet sides that are 3/4” poplar plywood. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to do this, jig or router table? |
I have built an extension support for one of my saw horses and have a friend that can help me feed it through on the table if this is the best way to do this. Thank you for your help in this challenging situation.

I cut my dadoes about 1/8th inch depth at a time and make repeated passes. |
Note: Just to make sure...you was not cutting the dado in the wrong direction, huh? It doesn't sound right that the bit grabbed the board.
Here is the link to my post (includes drawings of the exact width dado jig I built. Works great.

Where is MT Stringer when you need him? He has an excellent post on the exact width dado jig. |

Was the bit 3/4" or was it smaller and you were on the 2nd pass? If it was the 2nd pass then feed direction was wrong. In that situation you have to make the inside cut first and then the outside cut. (standard right to left feed). If you reverse that then the inside cut is a climb cut. |
I agree with the others that a jig and handheld is a better way to go. Someone will post their exact width dado jig sooner or later here. With it you use a smaller bit and make two passes, one along each side of the jig. Most finished ply isn't the size they say it is. It started out that way but then they sanded it and it winds up up undersize when that happens. The exact dado width jig solves that problem.
