Thanks for the replies.
Off subject question, have you ever seen a router lift for Dewalt 625 plunge router.
The same bit will work for 3/8"... just don't raise it as much. Crazy metalworkers!
I made one of these drawers yesterday and the it came out great the first time. used 1/2 plywood.
Now I am wondering about making a drawer/ tray out of 3/8 plywood, if you would need a smaller v grove bit.
Any thoughts about that.
Also in searching for the correct router bit I came across a web site that sold v groove bits for doing the same thing to metal. And further down the page there was a saw type blade that would do the same thing, cut groves to bend metal. Jeff
This is an awesome tip! Def going to use this!
It wouldn't affect anything. We used baltic birch which has a thicker outside layer, so we didn't have any issues.
Will the veneer break much and if it does will it affect how the tray goes together.
1" 90º v-groove bit.
Could some one tell me what size v grove bit was used.
While this is similar to the technique Andy and his tablesaw blade use, it's definitely not a new idea. In the magazine the reader who submitted the idea credits seeing it years ago on the Woodwright's shop.
Isn't this Andy Klein's idea he even took it further and now has a table saw blade and paired up with Rockler to sell on the market
