This was a little challenging because of how accurate it has to be.

But, I got it figured out and have been able to make some nice box joints with a 1/4” straight bit on the router table. Purple heart has worked great as a hardwood for the track!

Man I wish I had invested in a better router table that could raise and lower the depth of the bit.

I will post a money box I am making for my mom for mother’s day soon. Little story behind it…

All in all I really like it and want to make one for larger bit’s as well.

Nice jig davey

Regarding raising/lowering the bit, I’m very pleased with my Router Raizer.

It might be a solution for you – see

I also added the Xtreme Xtension – which clamps nicely and runs true

Nicely done! I’m gonna have to do this.

As soon as I get a router table which, now that I’m working again should be soon.

I’ve tried doing something like this and I always have problems with blowout cutting the joints. Any tips?

That router table looks a lot like the one I have. Skill RAS900. After I bought it – I found out that my old router did not fit – plate would not line up. Sooo back to Lowes for a new router. Bosch was on sale and it came with the plug base and std base. Once I set it up – I noticed this wrench and that hole on the top of the table – It fits in and you can adjust the router from the top. Boy – I lucked out that time….

Have your say...
