Re: Pattern-Routing Jig

I HAVE USED A SIMILAR JIG FOR MAKIG CURVED CABINET DOOR RAILS.
ONLY I GLUED SAND PAPER TO TOP OF JIG AND MADE A SET OF PATTERNS OF EQUAL LENGHT WITH NEEDED CURVES.
I ALSO HAVE USED DOWEL TO LOATE PATTERS ON JIG ,JUST DRILL
ALL PATTERNS THE SAME IN A STACK,THAT MAKES CHANGIG AND CENTERING EASY.
THESE PATTERNS ARE CLAMPED BETWEEN WORK PIECE AND JIG
SO ONE JIG CAN BE USED FOR A WHOLE SET OF RAIL PATTERNS.
