when I went to cut the bevels . because of lack of experience. I set the fence to cut just about 1/4 the way up the stave. Figuring to cut a tiny bit at a time. it was fine because the stave was up against the fence until the end of the stave. For some reason at the end of the stave , the stave moved "in" , "towards" the router bit cutting a slight bit more than the rest of the length of the stave . so imagine a nice cut of the bevel on the bottom . maybe 1/4 inch up the stave , but close to the end of the stave, maybe one inch from the end , "where the router bit opening is" it cut up close to 1/2 inch . I could feel it click at that point. very strange . so , I was thinking well if it is about making several small passes. then use the bearing to my advantage. put the bearing parallel with the fence. perfectly in line that is , then with each pass , raise the bit so there is always some wood on the bearing. once I get to the top I could put the double sided tape and sacrificial rectangle piece to have the bearing ride against ? But cutting the bevel first on the table saw makes sense . then using a piece of wood with perfect 90 degree sides for the final pass on the router table using the double sided tape would work.
the wood I am using is pricy and I don't want to mess it up. I was hoping that using a router would help with accuracy every time. the more input I get from you all the better . THANKS,!!!
