Re: How do I miter 3" and 4" thick table top slabs?
that would be my assumption rusty
it would be a tough joint to make successfully even in thinner material!!
a massive tablesaw with a sliding table would be the best way or an equally large radialarm saw thats very accurately setup. such equipment ofcourse, is not available to most of us
first of all, the material would have to be planed/jointed perfectly flat and equal in thickness everywhere, a big task in itself.
no circular saw except maybe the big makita will cut such a large bevel at 45 degrees but a circsaw and sraight edge will cut partway from both sides(tricky to line up the two cuts) then finish the cut with a handsaw
then the cut could be cleaned up by handplane or a router with a long straight bit from both surfaces with the router sliding on a jig to hold it at 45 degrees to the surface
if a countertop type saw could be tilted to 45 degrees(most cant) that would work
