Shop-Built Router Jointer
We'll show you how to build a unique benchtop accessory that converts a common router and a flush trim bit to a powerful jointer tool.
No room for a jointer? You can convert your hand-held router into a precision tool that creates perfect edges for smooth joinery on stock up to 1-1/2" thick. The plan design includes the same features you'd find on a full-size jointer — adjustable tables, built-in guard, and dust collection port — all at a fraction of the size (and cost) of a commercial model.

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.
