Default Hi-I'm new and I love routing

I have a minute shop and do most of my routing outside. I am a Veritas fan and use some of their bits and accessories on a PC dual base. I also use it in a shop built table with a Veritas plate. My bit selection ranges from cheap sets to quality special use bits. I want to improve my jig making and template making skills. HELP.

G'day Gary

Welcome to the router forum.

Thank you for joining us

We have a special section just for jigs - run a search for the type of jig you are after

Thanx jlord. First- I need help with the technique for smoothing the area between two paralell slots, say for a mortise or inlay template. Second- how do I jig up to rout a square or 90' corner. Thanx

A template guide or bearing guided bit will do the job and the inside of the corner will be square, but the outside will be round. Only way to square it is with a sharp chisel.

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.
