Replacing Router Base
I need to make letters about 8 inches tall and have found that templates for letters are only 2 1/2 inches at best - saw a post on this forum as to how to do it with the letters drawn on the wood and then routed but was unclear on how to replace the base of the router with plexiglass. Here is the excerpt from that post:
'I replaced the base of the router with a piece of 1/4 inch plexiglass that is about a foot square to give it a large foot print, and drilled a hole on two opposing sides and mounted a couple of dowels for handles to guide the router. All routing is done free hand.'
Can anyone tell me how to do this (replace the base)? And any other tips on doing a sign?
