I have been looking and looking online for a solution but I can’t seem to find what I need, or enough of it.
I am trying to find a simple and inexpensive way to route a design in a solid MDF cabinet door. Not a fancy design, just a groove a inset a couple inches from the outside of the door.
Is there a special jig that can be made that will accommodate different size doors? I have an idea in mind but Im not sure it’s the best possible solution….
What I envision is basically clamping 1 1/2” straight edges all the way around a cabinet door and then just running my router around the edges. Doing this will require me to cut one piece every time (but if I started with the largest doors I wouldn’t really be wasting any).
I recall one time I went into a cabinet shop and they had a router that was mounted on rails of some sort that they used to do this type of thing, it was all manually operated but the had adjustable guide rails. I know this is something I don’t want to have to fork out the money for…....
