Hi David, Welcome to the forum
I am assuming you want to bevel the ends at 45*. I would suggest a chamfer bit and push block. Could also be done pretty easily on a table saw, not sure what tools you have available.

Edit - Just went over and read your profile. I apologize for not doing that first. If your bandsaw table tilts that would also be a nice way of doing it. Lots of options here.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Hello papabob

I had asked the same question. Look under Tools and Woodworking tab for
45* on small pieces.

I havn't gotten the results I am looking for yet with the equipment I have but I still need to get my shooting board finished and I havn't tried Harry's disc sander method yet.

Good luck
Mike

Stick a block of wood with a good edge to your piece to be mitred (with double sided tape) make sure this piece is longer than the mitre and flush with the edge of where the mitre will be. put a mitre bit with a top bearing in the table. Set the router fence to the front of the bearing. Trim away so that the guide block runs across the fence.

Hmm, languages is a part of my education sorely neglected. I only speak the midwestern version of the american version of english, and not very well at that.
Anyway, and this is speaking mostly from ignorance, would it be possible to put V-grooves partially through 1/4" stock and soften it enough to fold into a box. Is that what Daniel may be alluding to?

That is what he was talking about. However, as wood is not treated as an engineering material, measured in thousandths of an inch. You will not get workable solution to the v-cut. Industry seem to be able to do it with speaker cabs and other wrap around products. But their stuff is often wrapped in veneer.Try and see. I have seen birch boxes made by the North American Indian First Tribes, that take a plank and fold it round, making a watertight container. Great stuff.

Yeah, I've seen native american stuff done like that but it was done with birch bark, not planks.
