Will this work? (trimming ipe plugs)
My ipe deck is progressing......thanks to all here for advice along the way!
I'm about 3/4 of the way finished with laying the ipe boards. I have face screwed and pluggeed rather than using a clip system. Soon I will be ready to trim the plugs to move on to the sanding stage. I have an idea on how to trim the plugs and thought I'd run it by the pro's here.
My thought is to lay 1xs on each side of a row of plugs - sort of like a railroad track. Then take a router and run it along the track to trim the plugs (obviously adjusting the height of the bit properly). Thoughts on this idea? Seems to me like it would work. My questions on this would be:
1. What type of carbide router bit?
2. Would I go with the grain or against it??
Thanks again for all your help. Very much appreciated......
