Default New flute maker

Just joined after buying new Rigid router. Plan on using it initially to route out bore and slow air chamber on Native American-style flute blanks. First, however, I need to figure out how to make a safe jig for accurate, repeat work.

Greetings and welcome to the router forum. Thank you for joining us, and remember to have fun, build well and above all be safe. I have that same router and have been quite happy with it.

Welcome indeed.

You didn't mention whether you're a novice or experienced flutemaker... if you're interested in linking up to a mentor, PM me and I can refer you to a fellow in New Hampshire that made my flutes. (He may well know someone in your local area as well, don't know.)

Enjoy-

Bob
