I designed and built this mortising jig to cut mortises for bed hardware. The jig works fine. easy to set up, easy to adjust.
I posted this blog when I was working on the jig and I am greatful for the suggestions made by people from this forum.

You have a keen eye Dan.
Yes. I already had the Dewalt router and wanted to be able to do plunge routing. I found out that the PC plunge base fit the DeWalt perfectly and was able to buy it separately. It worked out just like I wanted it to.

That’s a good Jig. It has left me rethinking a jig that I am planning for making housing rebates.
