Hey Everyone,

Nothing too new here, but this is how I use my router to plane cutting boards and also rough sawn lumber. It’s a very simple jig that could be made as complicated as you wanted to, but I am the impatient type so this is how mine turned out. The mortising bit really speeds this process up and makes a nice smooth cut.

Good job. The only thing that I can suggest is to make some thin wedges to insert on both sides of your work piece so the board doesn’t move.

Thanks. I do need to make some dedicated wedges. I usually just search around the shop for tiny cutoffs that work as wedges, but thats a pain. I also need to redo the piece my router is mounted to. I need to make it longer so I can mount blocks to the underside to prevent from accidentally coming to far one way. That would suck to have it fall off and gouge the workpiece.
