I know jigs aren’t a typical project we see here, but my version has a lot of adjustment to control the router spacing inside a piece. I added more travel in the guides to handle more size variations and depths for very accurate groove placements. Feel free to copy it…

Just finished a few small boards for horderves (sp) could have and will use your idea in the future. Love jigs that actually do something. Now for the small round ones.
Thanks. Good job.

actually we get a lot of jigs and fixtures posted here which is great especially when they actually work well.this looks like a great way to cut the grooves on a variety of different size boards.thanks for sharing this and welcome to lumber jocks.

I like the jig, would like to see a pic of the underside, how will you use it for thicker cutting boards? It looks like your router guide surface is only 3/4”?

The top and bottom guides are both movable – the bottom one holds the piece but the top simply guides the router base which sits on the top surface of the workpiece, regardless of however thick it is. Is that clear enough?

The knob shafts are T-bolts that ride in slots that cover the movement of the guides. The bottom also has some corner blocks to allow for a hold down clamp or screws to stabilize it on a bench. And, overall it’s pretty heavy too, which helps.

Sorry, I’m still not positive I fully get the set up. Got the grooves for the t slots and bolts but if your board is lets say an 1 7/8 thick how the router ride flat without tipping?

No problem – the router does ride just on the workpiece. If you’re afraid of the router tipping some shims need to be added to make up the height difference, etc. The router bed edge runs along the jig edges as set and the depth of cut is set according to the router plunge setting. Does that explain to?
