worktop joint

I want to do a *butt and scribed* (?) invisible joint on two post-formed laminated kitchen worktops. What do I use? A router? A fine jigsaw?

I've seen professionals cut the joint with a router. But they also used a jig to guide it which costs several hundred pounds. I've no idea how hard it is to get right without this.

Cutting a joint well is riding a bike, easy when you get the hang of it.
For the cost of a GOOD router & jig you could pay someone like me, & have change.

If we're talking GOOD then a hell of a lot of change I would hope:-)

I've just bought a bigger Router and about to buy a jig. I have two joints to make but have enough spare material to practice on first. I'll report how I get on in a few weeks.

I was quoted 95 by a guy who specialises in doing this service on-site. Seemed like a fair price but I bought the gear (from Screwfix)and did it myself, just for the experience.
