My project last week consisted of a router jig in which I could place my hand router and make hollow cuts.
After finishing this router jig, the question came up to me, could I do the opposite too?
After thinking about it, I thought last week’s jig might be the perfect base for making curved cuts.
In this video and blog, I will show you how to build this extension yourself and cut convex parts for your projects.
With the free downloadable plans, you have a guide to get started yourself.
Before we dive into the blog you can watch the video first. In that video, I will show you how I build this jig.
In the blog post underneath the video, I will describe step by step the actions you need to take to make this jig yourself.
Also, I will list up the materials and tools you need for building this project.
To prepare you for building this project, I have made a few handy lists.
In addition to a few personal protective equipment that I use*, I also list the materials as well as the (power) tools you will need to build this jig.
* Safety is always your own responsibility!
