Topic tags/keywords: jig tip question resource

If anyone can help I need to make my own router jig and dowel jig. I have seen some pics but some seem a little complex for me. I am working out of a backroom of a two flat and don’t have much space. can anyone share a design? feel free to send me a message/comment
