End grain cope cuts
I'm building some 5-piece doors for my vanity and medicine cabinet for my new bathroom.
I successfully set up the profile cutter to run the long-grain profile cuts on my rails and stiles, but am having trouble with the end-grain cope cuts. The pieces are only 1-1/2" wide and even after cutting deeply into my sacrificial fence, I can't hold the pieces square as I move them across the cutter.
I have a router table sled, but the cope cutter won't cut far enough into the sled's sacrificial fence to complete the cut, and I don't have a clamp with a deep enough throat to clamp the work to the fence.
Bill Hylton's Router Table book suggests a coping sled with an integral toggle clamp. Is this the best/easiest way?
What are you folks using?
BTW, the vanity seems to have moved from the "project" category to the "career" category, it's taking so long.
I'll burn that bridge when I come to it
