Build a box over the lathe that will allow the router to run along the leg (set up in the lathe) Route the groove in a couple of passes.

Hi all, thanks for the info it has helped a lot. I have updated my profile so hope it helps.The only problem I see with the craftsman is that is does up to 3" ,now being from South Africa we work in mm and my legs are 110mm in diameter which is about 5'' so what is available to do that, as in the beginning I only want to do legs with 8 grooves in it can one not make a jig? and how. All thanks again. Cheers

Hi Theo

Because of the diam, then I would use Mike's way,,I have a picture or two but it's just very simple open end box that fits over stock in the lathe ,if you have a index on your lathe you have it made if not you will need to make a simple one..

The box has a slot down the center to carrier a guide..

Peter has just illustrated what I use on my lathe, without the end spikes, as these are part of the lathe. A couple of horizontal brackets under the lathe bars hold it all firm. As Bob wrote, an open ended box with router support.
