I am not sure if I have seen a jig like this, if it’s a copy of someones I apologize. I wanted to come up with a way of becoming more efficient in my box building.
The base is a scrap piece of plywood ~12” X 40”. The oak cross slats, that the router rides along, are 3/8” tall. Those slats have to be as close to perpendicular to the base as possible.
I use a 1/2” shank 90^ V-bit in my DeWalt router and usually take 3 passes to get through the material. This jig allows me to put a 45^ bevel on multiple boards at once. The jig clamps to my workbench & I went to HF to get the deep throat clamp that allows me to clamp the inner board.
Instead of cutting through the entire board, I can cut just slight of going through which allows me to wrap the grain around the corner like the 5th picture herehttp://lumberjocks.com/projects/105600.
I find that it works really well, but I should have allowed for thicker material as this jig will allow only for material ~9/16” thick.
Any questions, let me know.
Thanks for looking.
