Router Guide


Are guides available that will allow me to cut a contoured groove approx 1/2 inch in from the edge of my wood project? My Milwaukee router has a Router Edge Guide which works great for straight line projects, but not so well for following sweeping curves.

This project isn't about "tight/hard" circles, but rather wanting to create a groove for slats along the bed of a 5 foot chaise lounge.

Thanks, Roger

Router Guide


Edge guides are best for straight runs, can you run a roller tip? If not, your best bet is to build a jig.

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I found a couple of home-made examples by searching on "google".
