Here is my take on a combo Router Jig. I like to call it my Router Buddy. I can attach a miter slide on the bottom as you can see in the pics which allows me to cut both a straight line dado or mitered for those unusual occasions. Also works great as a circle cutting jig with a dowel insert. I set this jig up to work with a 3/4” router bushing so as I turn through my circle cut it allows the router to rotate in the jig which allows me to keep both hands on the router throughout the cut. I can still use it in a fixed position as well by just using the base screws as I drilled holes for those as well.

Brilliant! I’m getting ready to build a new trammel – I will be stealing all your ideas (with your permission)!

Sorry – I must be having one of those days where you go “huh?” I’m confused on how this jig is used.

You can use it for few different things.. straight or mitered cuts with the miter attachment on it or take off and use the dowel insert for circle cutting. Dowel insert is not in picture. If you would like to view a more common type of circle cutting jig I have also posted a link below the pic to one thats out on the web for free.

great ideas in this jig : ) How thick is the plywood base and are standard length router bits long enough to use safely ?.....thank you
