Like any other new endeavor, practice on scrap wood first similar in thickness to the intended project. Also, although not necessary if you are patient, there are lock miter templates available to speed up the "set up" process if desired. To effect the cut on each separate piece of wood, several passes are necessary as this bit is large, and requires a specified working rpm.
The joint is very nice once you begin to get use to making the height adjustments. Good luck in your endeavor.
