Hi
I joined UKworkshop because I'm not the world's most accomplished woodworker. When I put up shelves all the books congregate at one end in fear of an imminent collapse at the other end. I'm in the process of making a base for an eliminated acrylic sign out of a block of hardwood and wanted to bevel the top edges. I've to a Makita hand router which I made into a routing table with a Wetrys Router Table Insert Plate which is working out OK or will be when I can figure out which bit works best to give a bevelled or chamfered edge. Nothing fancy, just to give it a more professional look to the base.

Thanks a lot

A bearing guided cutter will work best and whatever profile you fancy. Small pieces can be done with router in a table but for larger work it's easy to use the router right way up.
