Default Fluting jig

The only change I would make is to use a PLUNGE router.

I built one very similar to this years ago as I was doing a lot of fireplace facades. It worked well and I did use it with a plunge router. It.s still in my shop somewhere buried under the mountain of tools, wood and sawdust. If I live long enough I might find it some day.

I love how simple that is Harry. I had always built and used a much larger and slightly more complex jig that I learned when I was making mantles. Seeing this jig reminded me of Derek Willis and a very simple jig he made for fluting the edges of square columns, which you and I realized could be easily adapted for fluting round posts at the time. I hope you don't mind if I repost it here. https://www.routerforums.com/table-m...osts-legs.html Derek was a master at coming up with simple solutions to seemingly complex problems.

Thanks for reposting that thread, Chuck, enjoyed reading it.

Looks easy enough, any dimensions? Thanks for posting this Harry.

Thanks for that reminder Charles. I haven't heard from Derek for a LONG time, have you or any other member?

It is adjustable within it's design limits but can of course be made to suit the size timber that one mainly uses.

It's been maybe two years since the last time. He must get alerts because he replied to one of his other old posts that had been dug up. I tried to convince him to come back but he said he was busy enough at his men's shed and didn't have time. Our loss. As I said, Derek was a master at finding very simple ways to get jobs done. His circle cutter was an absolute piece of genius.
