Rout rabbets, dadoes, and half laps with ease

Quick Tip: Reset your routing depth quickly. To repeat a router bit depth setup, place the router on one of the jig fences and lower the bit until it just touches the bottom of the fence dado.

For rabbets the same width as your dadoes, place the end of the workpiece just over the fence dado, as shown in the photo, and rout against both guides. To make half-laps, unclamp the workpiece after each pair of passes and slide it along the jig. Repeat until you rout the full width of the half-lap.
