This is based on Bricofleur’s Route Through Jig with a few modifications. I dadoed all the joints to make it a little more rigid. I also put laminate on the top surfaces to repel glue and waxed the opposing surfaces of the ‘sliding’ parts. The knobs are shop built using 3/4” and 1/4” mdf with a 1/4” t-nut sandwiched in between the mdf. I think this will be a real handy jig. Thank you Bricofleur!!

Looks interesting even though I’m not familiar with Bricofleur’s Route Through Jig .

Hey Dave,

Mine is not unique anymore !! You did a great job, with very logical and effective modifications (there’s always room for more).

If you’re like me, you will use it in almost every sessions in your shop. Did you made yours to stand up by itself for storage? If not, how to you expect to store it? I store mine on its side at the end of the tablesaw outfeed table. Never further away. And when I need the full length of the outfeed table, I put the jig on one end on the floor.

I’m also glad to see that I’m not alone being fan of MDF !

At this point I am storing it in an empty bedroom next to my shop. As I reorganize my shop this winter, I hope to either hang it on a wall or suspend it from the ceiling. It is on my table saw right now because in the morning I need to route an edge on a cabinet top I am making. The piece is all clamped up and ready for the router! I have a large assembly table in another room of my basement but heat it on an as needed basis. I use it when I need the room or need a dust free area.

This is a very interesting jig.
