bobj3 Hi Dave

Ed just may have hit it on the head...

The ski jig can do this job easy and it's safe way plus it puts you in total control ..


You can make a template or just use the frame and the ski jig to get this job done..
It's easy jig to make and for about 5.oo dollars for some threaded rod and some nuts & washers you will have it done...

It can be used for may router jobs and once you make one you will use it all the time..

If you click on the View Gallery item on the left side of this post you will see many I have made with this great jig from Tom and Harry members of the forum.

Also check out Harry's Gallery, he has ton's of pictures how to use the ski jig and many items he made with his.

I have been using a forstner bit in a drill press then trying to chissel the rest and not having a lot of luck usually blow out one of the ends.

bobj3 Hi Dave

This would be a good job for a radio arm saw but if you don't have one use longer stock then cut/trim it to size after the mill rework..

Stock is cheap fingers are not.
