router for edge joining?
I'm building a few tables out of edge-joined planks (1-1/2" thick). At this point I don't have a great way of jointing the edges (making them straight and square) other than a short hand plane. No power tools other than a circular saw and a router.
How bad of an idea is it to clamp the two rough planks onto my workbench with about 1/8th of an inch between them, and then run a 1/4 inch router bit down the gap? In theory this should produce two edges that perfectly mate, right?
