I built this simple jig out of an old table leaf. I added plywood strips to guide the router, and cut a v-groove down the center for a sight to line it up, and cut a 3/4” slot down the middle for clearance. I put a scrap piece of red oak under it for a T-square and clamped it to the saw.


I used the miter slots to line everything up and screw it together.

It worked great cutting T-slots in my router table.
Line it up with the layout marks, and clamp it down.


Clamp the stops where you want them. And route the first side.


Flip it over and cut the other side.

-- I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you. I'm sorry,thanks.

Nice jig, and recycled lumber makes it that much sweeter. Bet you get a lot of use from it, I use mine on almost every project.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.
