Question I am new to routing

I have a DW 625 router and want to basically plunge rout some grooves across a 3ft x 1ft pine board. I have no problem with the first cut that is 2ins from the bottom because I can use the parallel guide but the next cut is 2 ft from the bottom. The parallel guide cant be used. Do I need to clamp a fence across the board or is there a simpler solution??

two clamps and a straight edge board or ? would be simple enough..make your cut..slide board or guide/straight edge..re-clamp, next cut etc...a few seconds between cuts..be pretty simple I'd say....

I think younhave the simple answer already figured out.

I would offer one bit of input. If you plan to do very man grooves over the years or dados it might be hard to get by with just an edge guide. You will always be able to solve your problem as you have this time, but there are a lot of diy groove/dado jigs out there that you could build quickly. I would build one that handles different widths easily. There are of course several guides for this purpose that you can purchase.

I only mention this because I have often caught myself solving a problem in a "I am only doing this once" way when I am not only going to do this once. Then my simple fix ends up being a time killer because I actually have to do it often.

If you are only doing this once then selling the router ignore me. Haha

I know the next guy to post is going to suggest building skis. Man I really need to build some skis
