1. Rip and crosscut all of your workpieces to their finished width and length. Adjust the chamfer bit for a full-height cut and position your router table's fence for a shallow cut. Make this cut on both edges of all of the workpieces. Move the fence back for a slightly deeper cut and repeat, doing this until your miter cuts on both edges come to within about 1/8" of the top of each workpiece.
2. Adjust the fence so the chamfer bit cuts the full miter without reducing the workpiece's width. (For precise results, make test cuts in scrap stock.) Make your final miter cuts on both edges as shown at left.
