I am going to make my daughter a ear ring holder and i need to make a simple jig to cut a 1/8 ” slot in 2 sides of the 4 corner posts to inset the six rails that will be on all 4 sides, i want to use a plunge router so i can have the slots in the corner posts all uniform, any suggestions ?
thanks
Bill

Do you have a drawing or picture of what you are wanting to do? I can’t get a grasp on the size of the project.

Do you have a outer table?

It’s got 4 posts, 6 rails per side (like a ladder?). So 12 holes per post, 6 being 90 degrees from the holes for the other posts?

yes you are right 4 corner posts and 6 rails on all 4 sides i can cut the rails at 45s so they will be flush to the corner posts, so i need the 1/8 slots in the corner posts to all be uniform so that is why i am thinking of some kind if wood jig for my router
Thanks

You only need an edge guide for your router for that if I’m understanding correctly.
