I have a home built router table and did not put a slot in it. So, I made a square jig that slides along the front of the table. I installed a toggle clamp to hold the work. squareness of your jig the most important thing. Keep plenty scrap around to test your setups on.
If you do not have a miter gage on your router table, you can use a piece of scrap wood cut square ( important it is square) to back up your piece as you send it through. Make sure you keep them square to the fence. In the photo I am using one hand because I am using other hand on the phone to take the picture

, keep both hands on the pieces as you send them through. You can reuse the pieceof scrap on other pieces and you do not have to go all the way through the scrap piece. This will also help prevent tearout of the piece as it exits the bit which is common on end grain.

Doors are one thing I don't use the Kreg on. I use router bits designed for this with the router mounted in a table. Stile and rail
bits aren't cheep but are a good investment.

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.
