Super Slab-Milling JigComments (0)
Pair your router with this sliding jig to flatten the widest, waviest planks.
By Rob Spiece
Here at Lohr Woodworking Studio, we work with a lot of large slabs. One of the biggest challenges with this kind of work is flattening the slabs. We have a great router jig that does the trick beautifully. It’s essentially a platform outfitted with rails that support and guide a router back and forth over the slab, while a wide-diameter bit does the milling. We actually have several variations of this jig, having refined the design over time while making new versions to suit different sized work. I’ve even made a few of these as one-offs for special projects. I’ll share with you here the latest and greatest version, which is an appropriate size for most medium to large slabs.
