When I made the saw board all I had in mind was, well … sawing. When I saw the other router jigs here I thought … why not. It turns out that there are many other applications for the rail system I have not thought of yet.
The set up consists of the board and rails shown in my saw board project. All I added was the mounting plate for the router which consists of two 1/4 in. plywood sheets cut to fit snugly between the rails and glued together. Before gluing them, I cut a round hole on the upper sheet for the router base. On the lower sheet is a 1 in. hole for the router bit. Metal straps are attached to the sides of the plate to serve as gliders. I used two sheet for strength. One sheet might not take the weight of the router.
