Versatile Molding Jig
Easy to build and use, this jig lets you create custom curved moldings.
Creating molding profiles is a bread-and-butter task for the router. But bearing-guided bits limit you to profiles along the edges of a workpiece. The unique jig shown here breaks through that limitation. With it, you can quickly and easily rout custom profiles across the entire width of both straight and curved frame pieces. At first glance, the jig may seem complex, but in reality it combines the functions of two common, handheld router accessories: an edge guide and a trammel jig. To top it off, in spite of all it can do, you can build it in a few hours with a surprisingly small amount of material and common hardware items.

Similar Woodsmith Plans
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.
All of the information that you need to build our plans can be found in the standard plan. However, if you want even more granular detail to make your job easier, you should consider our premium plans. These come with additional shop diagrams that we drew when creating the prototypes. Shop drawings are not available for every plan.
