Default Jig for burnt wood inlay

This is a jig I made (but haven't had time to try out yet). My goal is to put fully charred wood under it rout it for inlay. I can't rout for inlay first and then char because the extent that I char would burn up the rout for inlay. I'm thinking I'll use a candle to make the thing slide around smoothly. Any other ideas about using this before I fire it up? I'm a stay-at-home dad with 2 little kids, so I doubt I'll be able to use it as soon as I'd like. Thanks for any ideas.

That will work. The one thing I would add to it is some bracing at either end to keep the rails perfectly upright. You can add on to the jig and it will rout straight lines for you. If you want to go parallel with the rails then clamp onto your cross arms on either side of the rails and if you want to go cross ways then clamp blocks on the rails so that the cross arms can only go back and forth.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Another router plane option. Here is the Veritas Miniature router plane. Very small, a candidate for your project.. Veritas® Miniature Router Plane - Lee Valley Tools $41 bucks. Lovely LITTLE tool.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Stuart, I would use Johnston's floor wax instead of a candle. Wax will work way better.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

It would be nice to show some pictures as you make this. I would like to see how you do it and what it turns out like.

It's a mix of the planer jig from wood work web and the jig by robot six on instructables.
