Here is a simple router ski I made using a bunch of extra t-track and miter track I had left over from previous and current projects. It’s pretty easy to figure out but I will say that it is easily expandable by using longer miter tracks and easily leveled using the cam clamps and some washers. The router base is attached to top t-tracks, which glide perfectly in the miter slots. The miter slots and attached t-tracks easily slide along the hardwood oak strips I used. I usually lay down shelf liner to grip the work piece and as long as the depth and speed is set correctly I haven’t had any issues requiring hold downs or stops. I also plan on using this as a dado jig in the future to cut dados in long work pieces like bookcase sides. Feel free to ask any questions, I’ll try to answer them asap.
