May’s meeting covered end and sliding miter joints using the Triton router table.

Chris started the meeting with a review of a selection of end joining bits provided by CARB-I-TOOL

Brian then demonstrated tongue and groove and the related spline joint on the router table.

After the drawing of our major raffle (a lovely set of chisels) and an enjoyable tea break, Brian finished off with the sliding miter joint and edging with a melamine veneer.
