Here’s the mortising jig I designed to use in conjunction with a handheld plunge router. It was easy and straight forward to build with commun materials. Workpieces are secured between jaws and height adjustable external wings support the router while mortising.

Find all construction details and more photos from this page of my blog.

The jig requires a special base plate that I explained all the construction details on this page of my blog.

It sure makes digging mortises easily and fast. I hope you’ll like it enough to give it a try. Thanks for looking.

Very interesting concept! I built a different type of router mortiser, however this looks like it does a very fine job! Well done!
