Router Miter Trimmer

With a hand-held router and this jig, you can make perfect-fitting miters in no time at all.

Getting a miter joint to fit perfectly may seem like a simple task. Just cut the two pieces at 45° and put them together. What could possibly be easier than that? But if you’ve ever made mitered frames, you know it can take a lot of fussing to get the mitered ends to match up perfectly. No matter how careful you are, there’s always some trimming that needs to be done. That’s where this router miter trimmer comes in handy. This jig accepts stock up to 3"" wide so its not just for making frames. And trimming with the router means the miters are always cut smooth and accurate. One of the great features about this miter trimmer is the fact that you can make small adjustments whenever needed. You can slightly increase or decrease the trim angle to fit the situation. This makes it easy to trim almost any miter joint so you get just the right fit. But best of all, the trimmer is easy to build and easy to use. Since it’s portable, you can use it in your shop or take it to the job site.
