Question DIY miter :help:

I have a bar from Woodcraft that fits the track on a Kreg bench top router table. What would be a good and accurate way to build a miter to rout the ends of boards? Could it be made to be adjustable for different angles? Thanks.

Do you want to make a miter gauge,or sled for your router table and use this bar as a guide? I have not done that on a router table, I have always guided off the fence,and made a jig to clamp the piece to hold it while pushing it through the bit and have a sacrificial backup board.
My thought was that if the slot in the table was not perfectly parallel to the bit from end to end the cut might start right and end up wrong as it is clamped to the miter gauge.

Herb, I'm wanting to make a miter or a sled, using the Incra bar. Here's the need: I started to make a necklace rack for SWMBO. I routed the beveled edge on the long sides with no trouble. When I tried to bevel the ends of the board, about 2-1/2 inches wide, I got a wavy edge. It would be nice if it could be 90 deg. and 45 deg. Probably not need any other angle. Thanks for the prompt reply.

I would suggest more of a sled allowing you to clamp the piece and a backer. I would also suggest smaller bites...

The rotation of the bit would try to push the piece away as it enters...clamp will fix that...

I also just use a pusher block against the fence, then it doesn`t matter if the fence isn`t square to the table. I watched the Marc Sommerfeld shaker door video the other day and that`s how he does it too. If you want clamping ability look in my uploads to see a way to do it with a push block.
Nickp and Herb Stoops like this.

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.

Chucks way is the best, clamp it to a push block and hold the push block tight to the fence. the push block will keep it square and also back up the cut to prevent tear out of the side grain. This is the way I do it too, just didn't know how to explain it.

I just looked at CV chuck's uploads. I found what he suggested: 11/20/15, coping sled for a Triton table. Got it and thanks to all!
