Small Parts Router Trammel

By: Phil Huber
A router trammel doesn't have to be a clunky, overly-complicated jig. In this video, Phil shows how he uses a simple jig to cut perfect circles in small workpieces.

When it comes to making circles, I prefer a simple jig like this one when I can use it. The jig works as a trammel to guide your plunge router as you cut.

Drill out two holes in a piece of plywood, one for the bit and one for a dowel. Glue the dowel into the jig. Drill a hole (or holes) in the piece you’ll be cutting as well. Once dry, attach the jig to your router (I use double-sided tape) and fit the dowel into your piece, then let the jig guide your routing.
