I'm going to be joining 2 1×6" pieces of wood at a simple miter joint.
However, I want the top edges to be rounded over. I'm planning to use my router and a round over bit to soften the edges, the only problem is I'm not sure if I should…
- Route the pieces, cut the miter, then assemble.
- Cut the miter, route the pieces, then assemble.
- Cut the miter, assemble, then route the piece.
If I was only rounding over the outside edge of the piece, I'd probably route it after assembling it. Since I want to round over both top edges, I'm concerned the inside corner will not come out right if I assemble the piece before routing.
