Repetitive flutes are a great way to add style to columns, molding or furniture parts,
but machining them can be a true test of patience. Fortunately, this innovative jig
makes it fast and easy to rout perfect flutes with even spacing — every time.
Two low-friction, underside rails straddle your workpiece, allowing the jig to slide
smoothly along boards up to 8'' wide. The router mounts to a pre-drilled acrylic
centerpiece, which slides laterally to rout out flute after flute. Scales on the
centerpiece and writable/erasable indexing surfaces make setup simple.
Pre-drilled to fit most routers on the market
Easy to custom drill for non-standard routers
Zero mark on scales aligns with center of bit
Built with MDF, aluminum and phenolic for long lasting durability.
Easy to use! 1. Attach your router 2. Mark for your flutes on the yellow pad. 3. “Zero out” the metal scale with your first mark. 4. Lock down the acrylic base. 5. Plough out the flute.
6. Slide the base to your next mark, lock it down, plough another flute...and so on until your piece is done!

I love this jig! My wife wanted a "distinctive look" on the cabinets and bookshelves flanking our living room fireplace. The jig was very easy to setup and was very easy to get repeat results. The fluting will be the most eye catching part of this project. Thanks Rockler for making this weekend woodworker look like a pro!
I have use the fluting jig it work perfectly. I have use some other jig for flute, this is the best one.

A lot of jigs seem to be just gimmicks but this one is for real! I have done a lot of fluting either with an edge guide or router table and this is much easier and far more accurate. And more important it really does save a tremendous amount of time particularly in repeat set-ups for different widths! Well worth the money!!!

I don't often give feedback, but this time is an exception. This jig works as good as they say, it's easy to use, and simple. The only suggestion I'd make is to have more pre-drilled holes in the base plate to fit other routers. Or, provide a template to center a different router to the base, to ensure the new holes are properly positioned. This jig was worth the $, I'll be using it on many more projects.

I do a bit of case work requiring adjustable shelving using the pin system.
On narrower shelving, this jig allows me to easily pop in the notches on the shelf bottoms to lock in the pins.
While it can be similarly used as an edge guide on wider shelves, it sure would be nice if the jig could accomodate wider widths. It's quick to set up for this purpose and just sliding the router over to hit both notches on each end of a shelf is very efficient.
Yep, it does pretty well at fluting too.

Saw this product a year ago and finally pulled the trigger. Needed custom sized fluted pilasters for a custom entryway. Worked like a charm! Not surprised: I buy lots of stuff from Rockler. Just wished a store was close to home!!

This is a great product. It took little time to get router holes drilled, but wasn't that bad. It did a great job. And for the flutes, they turned out just great. Thanks Rockler for another fine tool for my shop.
