Used with a bearing-guided flush-trimming bit, this jig makes pattern cutting as easy as possible. It's made from a piece of medium-density fiberboard (MDF), with plywood locator blocks screwed in place to hold  the workpiece tight. Toggle clamps add extra control and make convenient handholds when moving the jig past the router blade.
