What router bit is used to create the inside angle on a window stool?


Just a quick question, am starting to trim out the windows in basement after renovation project. Because I installed full 2x4 walls where previously there were 2x2 pieces of crap, I needed to install jamb extensions and a fairly deep stool. The wider stool I need is not sold at the big box stores so am making them myself. Only question is what router bit is used to create the angled cut(not sure of correct term) on the inside edge of the stool?
thanks

if you are meaning the sill angle, you can do it on a tablesaw. Might be able to do on router table with stool vertical and a dovetail bit if the angles match.

I tried to do it on the table saw(a couple of weeks ago), but was not having any luck. Any pointers for the uninitiated?

Try moving the rip fence on the other side of the blade. Unless there is something that I am not understanding. Sorry. try posting a picture of what your trying to do. then I might be able to help.

OK, I will try again when I get home, hopefully post picture later. I swore I needed a router bit to do this, no kidding.

Mike: first decide on the width of the angle you need to cut; second the depth; next setup the fence to give you that width and lower the blade till you get the height ( depth when put on ) then depending on whether you have left or right tilt position the fence on the side AWAY from the blade when it is tilted; use a TALL extra board attached to the fence to solidify the sill in the VERTICAL, then rip thru to the previous cut to make your angle.
Now I get the feeling that you havent done much of this type of work and if you have somebody who has a bit more experience I think it wise to ask him/her to help you. Fingers do not grow back. REMEMBER you want the waste to fall AWAY from the blade NOT get trapped under it.

I set-up the table saw as specified and ran my test piece thru. Need to adjust the angle to get the dial-in the fit, but thats about it, was very close.
Thanks for the advice, much appreciated.
