First, install the chamfer bit and adjust its height so the bottoms of its cutting edges are just below table level. Then, set your router table's miter gauge precisely 90? to its miter slot. Add a wood auxiliary face to the miter gauge that extends up to, but just a hair shy of, the chamfer bit's pilot bearing.
Note: Perform each of the following steps on all of your workpieces before moving onto the next step.
1. Rip your stock to exact width and crosscut your workpieces about 1/8" too long. Miter one end as shown at left. For best control make multiple shallow cuts until the bit miters the entire end.
2. Cut a full miter on the opposite end, leaving each workpiece about 1/16" too long. Now, miter one workpiece to its final length. Then, use this workpiece to set a stopblock on the miter-gauge auxiliary fence. Cut all of the pieces as shown at left.
