Hi Jay

Take a look at the
Two Piece 22-1/2º Lock Miter Set ,it may work for you. 22 1/2 to 30 deg. is not a bit deal the norm.

But I will say a 30 deg.can be done easy with the router by using the setup below.

Hello all, I'm new to the forum, looking forward to taking part here.

I have a pulpit that my church wants me to build for them, it calls for a 48 inch long 30 degree, butt edge miter joint. I looked for a 30 degree miter lock but online but can't find one. Any suggestions, including an alternate method for the joint?

My concern is that the pulpit is 3-sided, made of oak, and that long joint will some some stress if the pulpit is moved, want to make it as strong as possible.

I've considered a spline or just multiple biscuit but I think miter lock would be the strongest.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Jay

Hi Jay

Just one more note, why make a easy job hard, just use your table saw and put in LONG (deep) spines., say about 1 1/4" deep in both parts..just by using 1/4" thick hard board.

The router is a great tool but not the only one for the job. :)

Hi Robert

I have a question for you, how would you cut the frame gussets out ?? to fit the angle.
Free hand band saw ?

If you can't find a suitable bit, the easiest solution is to add a frame member to the inside. You can glue it and even add screws (from the inside - to hold while glue sets). If done right, you won't even notice it (unless you also used screws).

A spline joint could be done but it would be difficult to do with a 30° miter, especially on the large pieces you'd need for a pulpit.

Hi Robert

Thanks for the feed back ,you lost me on that one at what angle do you set your saw at ?, 3 cuts ?, jig block ?,stand it up on edge and run it by the blade ?, a picture is worth a 1000 words on this one I think :)

Table saw - 3 cuts - very simple to do.
