I have a bunch of solid surface countertop from a demolition project at a trade show. This stuff comes in handy for making all sorts of jigs. Just be sure to chamfer the edges, so they don’t cut your work surfaces.
This edge guide allows me to route a dado, or similar pattern design as far as 12” from edge to center of the bit. Counter top for the base and the runner guide, a couple of 1/4” bolts with star knobs, and a 1 1/4” dowel for a grip. Even used another jig (circle jig) to route the arched slot at the pivot.
