Time to get the router in place. I found a popular board that I planed down to 1/4” thick and mounted to my router base. It has been a while since I did this, but if I recall correctly, I put the wood onto the router base, put the V bit into the router and put it in, slowly advance the router down till it barely poked through, OR I did it on the side you see in the picture with the pencil lines. Either way, you need to have lines to help you line it up with the guide block/nut. You can see I have 3 extra holes, 2 holes are outside the router base with one within it.

Here is the guide block/nut held together with those 1/4” dowels in previous photos. Notice the hole is drilled right in the center and big enough for the router to fit through.
