I built three tables recently and skinned them with 1/4” QS oak plywood, so they had the waterfall edges and the grain all lined up nicely.

I tired several methods to figure out how to get the corners nice and crisp and the thing that worked the best was using the fence to keep that very fine corner nice and straight and crisp.

My bit is like the one in your picture, with a bearing. I had the bearing buried in the fence to make sure that the plywood edge riding up a hair here and there wouldn’t have an effect.

It worked better than I expected. But, it’ll be a long month of Sundays before I undertake that on purpose again!
