Hey Len, nice work, do you use a template to route the juice groove?

Hi Larry , No Template used for the juice groove…..I use my PC router with the PC Edge Guide …the only tricky part is connecting the grooves at the corners without going too far in either direction : ) I rarely make the same size board twice , so a Template wouldn’t help me too much. All of my boards are custom sized to the customers desired spec’s . Some want the groove and others don’t…some like feet , some want handles…Bottom line is that Custom spells Dollars : ) I’ve tried mass producing Boards in the past but people just don’t want to spend the money on quality , so I send those people to WalMart to select their very own $4.98 board made out of Rubberwood : )

Thank you all for your great comments !

Actually , I’ve yet to make an endgrain board , but I see no reason that it wouldn’t work exactly the same way.
I would try it on a sample board first because sometimes the grain can lead your router bit astray . I also make several shallow cuts as opposed to just plunging into the board to full depth and when the groove looks good to me , I stop routing . I don’t have any set depth or width of the groove .When it looks good , I’m done : )
