I wanted to make 6-Burr Puzzles as Christmas presents, however, making them by hand was a slow process. I built this simple jig to speed up the process. Using a 10mm router bit, various 20mm square lumber, and various spacers I was able to dramatically improve production speed.

Nice job. I agree with degoose and think you should do a blog on this if you have time :)

Not too clear on how it works? Does it go in the table saw or is it a router jig?

Dan:
It’s clear to me and I ‘ve struggled with how to make these burrs for awhile.
How do you clamp down the blue board to keep the blocks from moving up while routing?
Great idea and I am going to make one today.

On my version… I simply used my hand to secure it down, towards the fence, and push forward. It’s far enough away from the router bit for it to be safe on the one I used. An alternative would be to use a toggle clamp.
