When I was the illustrator for Popular Woodworking Magazine, I came up with a rotary/variable-angle router jig that I thought would be useful for any number of projects. Then-editor Chris Schwarz decided that it wasn’t appropriate for an article because, in his words, “It would take a book to describe it.” As luck would have it, Jim Stack, who was heading up their book division, was in the process of putting together his “Cutting-Edge Router Tips & Tricks”. Jim thought the jig would be a good fit along with the scallop shell boxes that I was making with it. And so for one happy day we shot the step photos and I provided the plans for the jig and the box.
I guess Chris was right. :)
