I made a wooden sole for my Stanley No. 71 router using red-oak. I had to re-saw 1x stock by hand because I do not have a band saw or table saw. I also do not have a vise, so it was very challenging to hold the piece to re-saw. I ended up making stop cuts and chiseling to thickness, then hand-planed to finish size. It was a laborious process given my limited skill set and the limited work-holding options.
Here is a video of the entire process: https://youtu.be/MAlUOUQemyE
I am glad I did it, it really works well. I will need the help of the wooden sole to fit the tenons of my workbench legs (link to ongoing workbench build is here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2hWhJ2jIdxZNAPxH1uwvnt-gqTJmTO86 )
