Keeping a steady grip while routing the end of a narrow workpiece can be tricky—and hazardous. This simple guide keeps stock perfectly square to the router fence. It also supports the back edge of the routed stock to minimize tear-out. Plus, it keeps your hands safely away from the sptinning bit.To build it, cut the pieces to the sizes and shapes noted on the drawing. Cut several extra supports so you can replace them as the inside end gets routed away. For a comfortable grip, rout the edges of the handle with ¼" round-overs.Screw, but do not glue, the support to the base. Secure the handle to the base. Sufficiently countersink the screws securing the handle to the base so they don't scratch or catch on the top of your router table.—from the WOOD® shop
