Get a solid straight piece of wood, say 1-1/2" thick,
three to four inches wide and as long as your router
Cut out a semi-circle where the router bit goes. Select
a size about twice the diameter of your edging bit. So
if you use a 3/4" bit for the router, make your semi
circle about 1-1/2" in diameter.
Get a length of vertical and general purpose plastic
laminate. A bit wider as the wood above is thick, and each
piece about 1/2" as long as the wood above is long.
Glue the vertical grade on the "infeed" side of the stick
and the general purpose plastic laminate on the "outfeed"
side. The difference between the two is usually between
1/32" to 1/16".
Trim up the plastic laminate.
Thus both surfaces get a long lasting wear surface.
To use, one uses another straight edge placed along the
outfeed side and will position the fence so it just
touches the router bit when the bit goes through the
