Simple router edge guide | How-to

This was a very simple shop equipment build, that I needed to build as a component for a router mortising jig, although it is certainly useful in it's own right.

Stay tuned for a mortise jig build that incorporates this edge guide.

Tools and products used:

DeWalt plunge router
3/8" rod - Hardware store
1/4x20 J-nuts & Thumbscrews- Hardware store
Delta Unisaw
DeWalt DW734 Planer
1/4"x20 Brass threaded inserts
Titebond original Wood Glue
 

Dowel stop radius guide | How-to

A simple dowel-stop radius guide & compass. I needed something capable of drawing larger radii than most traditional compasses are capable of.

The idea came to me after watching Jack Houweling's dowel stop video--Thanks Jack!

Porter cable drill press
Box of random springs - Big box store
