I made this horizontal router mortising jig earlier this year. I built this using plans from some magazine, but I can’t remember which one (I think it was ShopNotes). I’ve also seen similar jigs here on LumberJocks.
To create a mortise, you simply attach the workpiece to the x-y table using holddowns. The router height can be adjusted using a star knob on the vertical panel. The maximum mortise depth is controlled by the router bit depth, and the mortise length is controlled by stops clamped to the x-y table. I really like the design, and the jig works perfectly to create clean, consistent, and quick mortises.
