Making Mortises With a Horizontal Router

Routing mortises is something we do a lot in our shop. But, balancing a router on the edge of a rail or stile, for example, can be hard. But, what if you hold your router horizontal? Then making the mortises becomes easy. This jig allows you to turn your router into a slot-mortising machine and knock out mortises with ease.
