I am making a dresser which will be the mate to one I already own. Each
drawer has mitered oak trim on the front with the front face of each piece
of trim being beveled. Before I do the miters I have to make a cut on the
face of each piece of the drawer trim to get the bevel. I am posting a
picture on abpw if you want to see what I am talking about.
To make this bevel cut (18 degrees) on my table saw I need to run a 2" wide
piece of 3/4 oak down the length of my table saw. I will be making the cut
into the 2" face. I am really worried about kickback or other problems on
this cut. If I keep a feather board on the table saw pushing the board up
against the fence and another featherboard on the fence pushing the board
down on the table, do you think that will work? What do you think about
this cut? What can I do to maximize my safety as well as protect the wood
from being screwed up?
I had thought about doing this with a panel raising bit on my router table
but I don't own such a bit and I'm not sure I would find one that is beveled
at 18 degrees though I have not looked.
