Hello,

Am a senior and woodworker, in Mannville, Alberta, Canada. Came to this site looking for plans for a shop-built surfacing jig. Any suggestions?

What you want is called router ski or router sled

I think you are probably referring to what is commonly called a "router ski" or "router sled" around here. There's been lots of posts about them, such as this recent one. You can use the "community search" function at the top of this page to find and browse those posts.

Thanks, James. In my message, I gave my name, my town, my province, my country. :)

I've fleshed out the profile.

Good to hear from you.

Hi Norm:

You'll want a pair of skis or a pivot frame. The vertical sled can work but it's point of reference is the material you're trying to size so getting started is problematic.

Thanks Norm,

That is one of the results of using a default signature and was not meant for you in particular.....
A number of the new members do not give the basic information(as is their choice and right)

I trust you found the answer to your query?

I know a number of the members use a ski set up to flatten surfaces.

Thanks to those who stated me thinking about a router sled, or router skis. That was what I needed ... I was wanting to rout out damage to the underside of a desk top. The picture shows the thing which did the job. I'm still playing
with the "perfect", expandable guide strips to contain this beast.
