Had a little time yesterday after I routed the binding channels on the J-185 and decided to improve upon my end graft routing jig. Below is the result. Pretty cool little tool and worked great on the J-185. Now I need to build another body so I can use it again!!

I do too. Now we need to figure out how to do curved ones with that!

Seems like you could do different guide pieces of the jig for curved ones or different shaped ones -- you'd only need to get it perfect once for each shape whilel making the jig and there wouldn't be any problems messing up a guitar body.

Thanks Gents! I have had the slot and knobs sitting around my garage for awhile. I finished routing the binding channels on the J-185 on Saturday and decided to put the slot and knobs to use! Didn't take too long to knock out.

I use a collar on my laminate trimmer, which rides along the guides. I mark off the wedge shape on the guitar with a pencil then simply put the guides on the line and route away. I need to add about 1/32" to account for the collar.

I'm bumping up this old thread of Ken's.

I like the jig you have here. It looks like you used T-track, true? Anyone know if T-Track is available at Lowes or Home Depot?

I'm behind on my binding and endgraft due to being out of town for a funeral over the weekend. I'm ready to route the end graft channel and want to make some kind of jig that provides a fence for routing so did some searches and found this one.

Anyone have another approach that is simple and effective?

I found Ken's old jig he had prior to this one......it's pretty simple and affective. Looks like he uses a clamp to hold it in place:

Adaboy, Still using the T-Track version. Used it for the lacewood endgraft on the EIR OM. It does work great. The old one worked pretty well but took just a bit more time to setup. A small clamp held it in place, but I was always fearful of the jig moving as I was routing. I did three guitars with the smaller jig with no issues, but moved on to the mo' better one for the last three!

Not sure if Lowes or Home Depot carry the track. I purchased it at Woodcraft.

Robbie O'Brien has a useful video on you tube concerning end wedge installation. He has many videos on you tube called "Tips de Jour" or something similar. Good stuff.

Dang, sorry, that's a link to his nuts. And bridges. But that screen should list his other videos as well.

It looks like Robbie cuts the tail graft before the top and back are in place. Also, I doubt my sides are the same thickness as my tail graft which is 0.060" thick so I can't cut all the way down to the end block.

I had sure hoped to be past this by now. The good news is there is a 3 day weekend coming up so I hope to get this done and possibly the binding.

Darryl, some folks cut the end graft and install before routing the binding channels. I prefer to cut the binding channels and the end graft slot at the same time. I then make the end graft depth the same as the binding. I usually have purfling below the binding, so this gives me a little margin for error if I happen to cut the end graft channel a hair deep.

Tony, the wedge is maple burl.
