Making mortise with good plunge router bits is the way to go but its hard to make repeative and accurate mortise with a router if you dont have an ajustable jig. So I made this jig out of some russian birch that I had laying around, and made couple upgrade lately at first I had toggle clamps holding the stock but I didnt like to reajust every time for different stock thicknesses so I put on those shop made clamps that a friend of mine gave me and as simple to make than to use. The only other upgrade I would make on it would where the fence of the router base is and replace it with a shaft and mount linear bearings but it works just fine! Its one of those jig that took me a long time before I took the time to make it but now im so glad I took the time to make it. cheers

looks like a really functional well built project. Good job. I must point out though that those cauls appear to have a bit of a phallic influence to them.

It’s well done and a nice addition to your shop.
