I built this adjustable jig for routing end graft recess in a guitar body.

The design was inspired by several postings in the Official Luthiers Forum. I'm struggling now to find the original design postings in the OLF archives, but if I do I'll post links here.

The jig is constructed using two Incra T-Track Plus extruded aluminum tracks. The jig "aprons" are lined with cork for gripping the guitar body and they are tightened around the body with threaded rods.
