I’d like to see more on how it works. I can see a crank and belt, but not sure how it works. Any more pictures?

You make a 8” by 8” blank and put that in the middle of the jig. The router is mounted on a flat board with runners on the side and set on top the other part of the jig. With a round nose bit the flat board part rides on the curved sides of the jig. You start the process in the middle, turn the hand crank then move the flat board a little bit along the jig until the bit stops making contact with the chopping block, the move back to the middle and lower the router bit and start the process again until the block is dished out enough. When you are done with that use a curved card scraper to remove the ridges left by the router bit and sand it smooth.

Have your say...
