I built this jig to carve wood with the router,
taking his cue from the video posted by a carpenter Russian.
The setting of the project seems to me good, however I’ll still do some modifications, for example in support
steel in which and secured to the router. In order to better comprehend the
project I enclose the address of the the video.

It sure is ingenious. I did not see the riser under the workpiece at first and could not see how the depth of cut was changing. At the end of the video the riser was evident and it became obvious as to the flexibility of the simple jig.

I saw a router jig, in a old book by Spielman or Capotosto or DeCristoforo .. , that suspended the router at variable distances above the work. The motion of router could be totally free in all directions or limited in any number of directions.

It was intended to rough out chair seats and other carvings by locating the workpiece and swinging the router in one or more directions.
