I know that there are many jigs out there for doweling and mortising, however whilst the principle of this one is far from new, I haven’t seen one that can sit comfortably on a 1” piece that would most likely be used making face frames etc.
It has since occurred to me that if the two pieces of wood were perhaps about 1.5” wide by 3” deep and mounted on a sub base with a 3/8” bolt, then it wouldn’t be necessary to run it along the bench. It could I suppose be further improved by adding compression springs to ensure a constant friction so that when the router is sat on the wood or door, when the router is twisted the whole assembly remains perfectly stable with the bit at right angles to the wood. Here is the link to the project.
