I found this project http://lumberjocks.com/projects/23200 and really thought it would be a very useful jig. Please see all the functions of the jig made by Bricofleur as I will not be going over that part of the jig. I wanted to modify the jig based on two things: 1) ease of use, & 2) storage. I made the first set of holes for the dowels 6” apart for thin go-through routing pieces and then 1-foot apart all the way to 4 feet. One thing I hate being bogged down with is setting up a jig with clamps. I was taught the wonderful use of dowels to secure jigs without clamps by ohwoodeye in the comment section of my Mortise & Tenon Bench Top Bench project http://lumberjocks.com/projects/92449 and proceeded to use that method, making this a very simple, highly functional jig that is easy to store. I added a 3rd piece (last photo) for additional support if needed. Thank you Bricofleur & ohwoodeye for sharing, allowing me to come up with this project.
