Default Routing out inside of a 3/4 x 2 x 4

I am needing to hollow out the inside of a piece of wood that needs sides and ends to be 1/4 and the bottom to be 1/8. The piece is to small to try on a table I think. What would be the better choice and ease to repeat.

Thanks
Dave

Hi Dave

This would be a good job for a radio arm saw but if you don't have one use longer stock then cut/trim it to size after the mill rework..

Stock is cheap fingers are not.

Hey BJ,

Wouldn't this be a job for your sled jig?

Let me try to explain this better. It will have a bottom and 4 sides that are of the same piece not glued together. I need to removed the wood from the middle of the block. I will stop when I am 1/8 from the bottom and over to each side and end 1/4 from the edges. A rectangle bowl kind of.

I have been using a forstner bit in a drill press then trying to chissel the rest and not having a lot of luck usually blow out one of the ends.

Hi Dave

Ed just may have hit it on the head...

The ski jig can do this job easy and it's safe way plus it puts you in total control ..


You can make a template or just use the frame and the ski jig to get this job done..
It's easy jig to make and for about 5.oo dollars for some threaded rod and some nuts & washers you will have it done...

It can be used for may router jobs and once you make one you will use it all the time..

If you click on the View Gallery item on the left side of this post you will see many I have made with this great jig from Tom and Harry members of the forum.

Also check out Harry's Gallery, he has ton's of pictures how to use the ski jig and many items he made with his.
