In working on my crib (see Blog) I have ran across a problem. I need to route a few different shapes, dadoes, inlaid plastic hardware, keyhole slots, ... I thought I’d be smart and use my router table. Background info: My router table is actually a cast iron top attached to my Unisaw. This way I can use the Unifence as my router fence. The problem I had was I would get part way through the cut at the piece would pull away from the fence a little and result in a crooked cut.
My next attempt was to use a featherboard. This didn’t work well with my stops because I had to stop on both ends and you can only push one direction with a traditional featherboard.
My Solution: Use a piece I made for my bandsaw. I resaw guide.
This worked great. Held the piece tight to the fence as well as allowed me to route forward and back to make sure the ends were cleaned out well.
