Default router table purchase: artist needing stretcher joint information

I am an artist and trying to make stretcher joints which are mitered joints basically that are keyed so that you can restretch the canvas if it starts to loosen up.


anyone have any tips on how i can make this joint with a router and router table?

thanks

well, those miter lock joints aren't long enough and don't allow a key to be placed in to stretch the canvas. As far as the Pdf file, the key has to be on the inside. It's the joint on a stretcher bar for canvas frames. It's an open mitered joint like the one a miter lock bit makes bit is approximately 2 inches deep and has a little extra room for a key to be hammered in if necessary.

good luck

It looks like i can do the cut with a large lock miter bit and then with a slot cutter or a straight bit. You have been so helpful... thank you
