... if you make this stuff for a living it can mean the difference between having a drawer in under 5 minutes and having one in over 10 minutes.I really like it, but my first thought was, how long would this expensive blade last, before it needed to be sharpened, or replaced?
His cuts can all be done with a router. The "one pass on a table saw" is nice, but it doesn't mean the difference between making, or not making a drawer with these joints.
Herb,Here is a cool video on how to make drawer boxes and plain boxes.

in your case ...I'm amazed by this . Then again I don't really know how to make drawers so this looks like a nice outcome . Never thought about the sharpening issue though . Was just impressed someone could actually come up with this idea
Well, it depends. If you have three router tables, you can make the two different levels of dado cuts, and then come back with the third table and make the deeper V cut. You pass the material through a blade 12 times instead of four, but I don't see it doubling the time if the shop is set up correctly.... if you make this stuff for a living it can mean the difference between having a drawer in under 5 minutes and having one in over 10 minutes.
It wouldn't be for JUST a couple of drawers. It would BE your router table. If you were a production shop, you would have a dedicated table with these three routers to cut all of your drawer slots.I'm am a real newb with the router, but this three router set-up seems like an awful lot of set-up work to make a couple drawers. Are there any other uses to have a three router set up like this?
this one???Wow! I see we have some really creative, intuitive members!
Anyone seen or used this bit? " Rockler 45° Lock Miter Router Bits - 1/2'' Shank " ( Sorry, I am unable to post links) Would you be able to put a screw though a cut like this? (Thinking car audio sub boxes)
Hmmmm....Do all the lock miter bits have the same profile? can the Infinity gage be used to set them all?this one???

I would venture to say many here use that bit and ones from other manufacturers...
suggest you get the set up gages for it and yes you can add screws to it providing you predrill...
