Nice looking build. You need more pics and more details. Plans would be nice also. Inquiring minds need to know. :)

Yep, saw it in Shopnotes. Works well. Uses 2 inch router bit that I purchased at Rockler.

You can’t do that. You can’t build a jointer without a jointer. Now cut it out!

Looks good. The blade guard was throwing me until I realized the router is horizontal.
