If you Like Woodworking, You Will Love Router Boss
Router Boss is a multi-functional router jig and milling tool. In woodworking, it's all about good design, craftsmanship, and taking pride in what we produce. We need tools that allow us to work wood the way we want to. No other tool on the market gives woodworkers greater precision and freedom in creating beautiful woodwork than Router Boss.
Modern Design with Safety in Mind
For joinery operations, a wood router can be the most essential and versatile tool in your shop. You need a way, however, to manage both the router and the wood in a safe and precise way. Router Boss was engineered to closely control both the router and the wood, while not putting limits on the cuts you can make. With solid support for the router and wood, both the router and the wood can be nimbly maneuvered to make the cuts you need. You'll never experience the fatigue that comes from lifting and handling a bulky and heavy router. Plus, your woodworking will be more effective and enjoyable due to its capabilities and ease of use.
Equally important, Router Boss mitigates the risk of injury by keeping both the router and wood properly secured and eliminating any risk of kick-back. Your hands are never too close to the bit, and your cuts are made with full-on visibility that keeps you in control. Excellent dust extraction is another safety feature that keeps debris from obscuring your vision and eliminates mess.
So Many Functions, It's Really a Milling Tool
Router Boss has so many applications that it is in a class by itself. More than just a routing jig, Router Boss has versatility you will not find elsewhere. You can create all the joinery necessary for entire assemblies such as doors or drawers without the use of hardware templates and specialized bits. Some of its more notable functions include:
Dovetails (all types)
Plus most other joinery

Try our new design tool for finger joints and watch our new design tool video. This new tool creates a cut pattern that, when affixed to Router Boss's rulers, controls the cutting of a finger joint. Unlike with hardware templates, the design tool imposes few limitations. Choose any board width and bit, plus, with the advanced option, you can choose number of fingers with variable finger spacing. You can even adjust for tightness of fit. Our older design tool for dovetails offers similar versatility for dovetail joinery.
Check out James Stegall's first chair project using his Router Boss. Look at Larry Thomson's first Router Boss project, a backpacker's registration box for Grayson Highlands state park. His box uses lock-miter joinery and he even included a knob made on our new 4th Axis Work Holder. He has also sent us pictures of his second Router Boss project, a walnut desk with a unique dovetailed top, raised panel sides and legs turned with 4th Axis Work Holder. Tim Kirby sent pictures of a student desk which was not only his first RB project, but also his first woodworking project. Tim's next project was a bowl/tray. Also, look at Brad Thode's innovative height adjusting workstation for his Router Boss plus he provides a drawing showing how you can build one for your shop (view2, view3, view4). Plus, Gordon Greig sent us pictures of how he mounted his Triton router on the Router Boss. Franck Macquart provided a French language video on dovetail joinery with the Router Boss and is a possible contact person if you are considering purchasing in the EU.
