Not the most elaborate, for certain, but it was for a one off job. This is the only piece that remains.

Pieces and strips of plywood glued to a hardboard base. The other piece of the jig was a sled that firmly held a 6 1/2” x 14” piece of maple. The slotted jig was screwed in place and then the slots were used with a router fitted with a straight bit and a guide bushing to cut the maple stock. Flip the work piece end for end and repeat. The top edges of the piece were given a wide gentle chamfer on the table saw and the underside was trimmed to fit an opening. A floor heating vent cover to go with the new maple flooring we had installed. Much nicer look than the crappy metal ones I could find. I’ll probably never use the jig again, but the time to make it was worth it.
