Router Mortising Jig
With this simple jig and a plunge router, you can rout mortises or panel grooves in any size leg or rail. The work is held between the jig and your bench vise, clamped flush with the surface of the jig. The jig provides a stable base for the router. Adjust the fence back or forth to orient the router cut to the workpiece. For longer pieces, make a longer jig, and clamp the workpiece at each end.
