Default Router Jigs

Hello, I am new here. I am a retired university professor interested in wood working. I have a feeling I would learn a lot by joining this forum. At the moment, I'm looking around for easy to make router jigs. I sure would like to hear from you.

Ed,
There are several good books on jig making, Patrick Spielman does some good stuff,if you want a specific jig, then ask and you will get, most of us have a shop full of jigs, (you never throw one away), so it is all out here.
Good luck.

The newer edition of Bill Hylton's Woodworking With the Router was most instructive to me. I used his design to build my router table. Most tables are a box with a flat work surface on top. Hylton's features a lift-top feature, eliminating bending to clamp or unclamp the router when adjusting bit height.

Another book with some great insight is Pat Warner's. He suggests some unusual jigs.

And of course there is this forum.

Hi Ed:

Ok, send me a private message with your e-mail address and I'll send you a copy of routers organized. Once you've read that, you can understand that there are methods, jigs and fixtures and how they relate.

Once you have that understanding, jigs and fixtures become job dependant. So, it looks like you want the methods list.
