So there i was waking up from a snooze on the couch last eve and i decided to look at my glue up. I’m making my first end grain cutting board. As i removed the clamps i came across a dilemma with the glue up and of course it needs a good planning before the next cuts ect. So there i was online browsing you tube ect and some ideas and walla! a jig made for routers to plane large glues ups ect. I was soo stoked about it i couldn’t sleep till late this am like 2am. And so there it is 5 hrs of sleep 2hours of work and im done with it before i head off to church!
SO this is my first jig i have ever made and its basically a router planner jig or how ever way you want to call it. I used 1/2” oak ply for the base, i used 2×3/4 oak side runners for the sled itself. The sled is made from 3/4: oak for the rails and 1/2” oak ply for the base where the router sets on. I also place 2×3/4” oak strips along bottom sides of sled to maintain stability and to run along the base rails. Thanks for looking everyone and comments for this newbie carpenter. God bless you and yours.
