Easy Birdmouth Joint on the Table Saw


Introduction: Easy Birdmouth Joint on the Table Saw

About: Find more of what I do on my homepage and on Instagram. But no matter where you go, remember to Be Inspired!

A Birdmouth joint is commonly used in roof construction, but it can also be used for boxes or other kinds of woodworking where you want a 45° conection that is easy to glue and does not slip like, say, a mitre joint.

There are specialised bits for the router table to make these, but you can also create them on the table saw.

Enjoy, and remember to be Inspired!

    I thought this would be an instructional tutorial. ?

    The instruction can be found in the video. I did not take any pictures during this one, and I thought the video does a much better job at showing the process than me describing it.

    where is the instruction?
