My fellow lumberjocks, I’m coming to you because you’ve never failed me and I need a spark of genius.
It’s somewhat of a long story, but I work in a fine dining restaurant and the executive chef asked me if I could make a few small charcuterie trays for each of his guests attending a special New Year’s dinner. Long story short, I’ve got the little trays already cut to 4” x 6” to his specifications, but was hoping to use my new plunge router to carve out a recess in them. I figured it’d be a good way to keep the food from sliding off.
Anyway, if it were a bigger piece I’d just clamp it down and that would be that. However, with the pieces so small I’m having trouble coming up with an effective means of securing the piece/making guides. I literally just got the router for Christmas so I’m pretty new at the whole deal. It very well could be something obvious that I’m not thinking of. Suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
