Question Home made router jigs

I have a basic Black and Decker router that I purchased in 1969. I hardly used it and it still looks like brand new. I just got it out of storage and would like to maximize it's use. Since the commercial router jigs are a bit expensive I am looking for ideas on how to make a one.
