I found this idea in a magazine and I think it’s a pretty common jig but when I made exactly to the plans it didn’t work so had to make twice to suit
It’s just (2) milled 2.25” x 20” x 3/4” hardwood with 1/4” x 7/16” rabbet rails and a couple of 2” x 1/4” slots. The two end pieces measure 12” and 6”. Bolts are 2” x 1/4” hex head bolts with washer and wing nuts. Countersink all hardware.
This jig was made for a 1” OD guide bushing and a 1/2” straight bit.
Just pinch the board to be inserted into the dado to get the size, clamp everything down and run the bit up one side and down the other. Remember to start the cut on the inside of your jig not on the outside – I didn’t! :)
