Homemade adjustable router fence.

Anyone have a homemade router fence that has an easy to adjust depth-of-cut feature? Not in a position to 'buy' a router fence, but I do have a sheet of 1/2" Baltic Birch just waiting to be used up in jigs/fences, etc.

I'm starting my woodworking learning curve on picture frames, and the constant 'bump and hope' method of my current rip fence mounted router fence is really not a good/accurate way to go as far as I can tell.

My first router table I used an old table saw that would have cost me more to fix than replace, so I replaced it and used the table for my router, The blade raising mech was still in good shape so I attached the router to it and use the sliding rip fence on the table. Still works today. The measure on the saw table for the fence sure comes in handy. I'm better with tools than with a computer or I'd send you a pic. But I think you get the general idea. I think the router that I attached was a Makita 3609 fixed base but had to take off the depth adjustment band for some reason. It's only a 1/4 in but I still use it today from time to time.
