Palm Router Fluting Jig
Adding flutes is a great way to dress up a project. This shop-made jig makes it easy to rout consistent flutes quickly.
Fluted legs or trim pieces can add a classic look to a project. But the challenge is making flutes that are straight and evenly spaced. To solve those problems, I made this fluting jig designed to fit a palm router. The jig is pretty simple - It’s just a baseplate made from a piece of acrylic. A set of hardwood spacers makes it easy to position the flutes evenly across a workpiece. And using the jig with my palm router makes it easy to handle. I like this jig because it’s versatile - You can make the spacers wider or narrower to adjust the spacing of the flutes. This is one of those simple projects that you can put together in an evening. But it’s a handy jig you’ll use for years to come to add appeal to your projects.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
