Essential Router-Table Jigs: Pattern-Routing
Watch how to make this basic but effective jig that lets you duplicate profiles quickly and precisely
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.
