Okay, this gonna sound weird . . but every router bit in my stable is of
the "Edge Forming" or "Rabbetting" variety.
What I Wanna Do:
I'm working with some panels that are beyond my "Comfort Level" for
tablesaw work. I've some baltic birch plywood that I've cut to rough
size, laminated to ~1-1/2" thickness.
I now want to cut these to "Finished Size."
I think the best way to do this is with a router--some contours that I
can use a masonite guide to cut.
What's the best way to do this?
A top-bearing flush cutter, making my guide the exact contour?
What about long straight cuts, running the router along a straight edge?
That's something I envision doing fairly frequently--it's be easier to
control than my current circular saw method. Is there a special bit for
that or would I just use a straight cutter?
