Rout Through Jig

I designed and built this jig because I felt it was awkward and hazardous to rout through a workpiece overhanged over the edge of a workbench. I wanted a safe way to rout slots, large holes or patterns on a solid and secure base.

I soon found out that this jig is also perfect to raise a blank to be cut with a circular saw, a jigsaw or a rotary tool, and also great as assembly or glue-up table since I can clamp a project from under.

In fact, this jig is a perfect small shop solution since it is a multi-purpose jig in one.
