Default help solving a routing problem

Hello to all, and once again thanks for allowing me the opportunity to join this router forum, my reason for joining is pretty selfish, I needed info on a routing process. I have a router and router table, with a fence....I want to make wooden flutes, and need to use a 7/8 core box bit to route a large bore down to halfs of a blank, they will be 3/4 x 2 1/4 x 24, and want help finding a safe way to secure the blanks for routing....I will need to step down to a depth, lift the piece move it about 3/4 of an inch and route another bore about 3 inches long, I don't feel comforable with my fingers in close to the bit, so I thought maybe someone had a jig idea I could use and try?.....hope all this makes sense.....Dennis

Hi Dennis

I'm not 100% this what you want to do

The easy to make hinge jig it may do the trick for you and I would suggest using the bits below to get it done.

You can also use a ski jig to do this job done

Bob, thanks for the quick response...I want to 2 2 pieces of 3/4 x 2 1/4 x 17 in stock, and route a 7/8 bore...I would route 1 piece and then the 2nd one...then the 2 pieces are glued together and I will, with a little luck, turn a flute out of them.....but the bore is not all the way thru the stock, it runs from one end, about 12 inches or so, then there is a solid wood, and then another 7/8 bore that does not exit the other end, it is about 3 in long...so I have to route, lift move past the solid wood and then plunge down again, that kind of worries me.....Dennis

Hello Dennis, Welcome to the forum. I wouldn't call that selfish, You just need to get a job done. I believe that you will be back when you go into all the galleries, most of them have some information, and some have pages of valuable information. Enjoy!

Here's my solution for a simple flute jig. The wooden slats match the spacing of the flutes, so you can make many to fit the diameter of any flute bit you have.
Mount the router on the ugly side, formica helps it slide easier and you're good to go
