Default MartyP

I'm wanting to route a chamfer bit edge on some hard maple. The bit is about twice as long as I want to mke the cut. I'm going to try and do it with 2 passes. I have several boards I want to be matching. Any suggestions of how to keep the depth uniform? I'm using a Bosch router and do have a plunge attachment if needed.

Do the first stage on all sticks.
Change depth, check on scrap for approval.
Then rout your project stock.

If you plan on making progressive passes then the best is to set the router to the first pass anddo all the boards and then set it deeper and do all the second passes. On some of the more complex setups, like using rail or style bits or a lock miter bit it can be a good idea to take a piece of scrap and make a profile on it that you can match back up to at a later date. Those are called "dummy sticks".

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.

Use fence and feather boards on side and top to hold the piece tight to the table and fence

Hi Marty and welcome. You don't say whether you are intending to do this on the router table ( much easier if you are ....)

Been at sea most of my life and still all at sea now.
