About The WoodRat™

A sample of joints created by the WoodRat
Joints Created by the WoodRat™
Designed as a wall-mounted workstation for efficient use of space, it is straightforward to install; step-by-step instructions provide clear direction for drilling the router plate to suit.

The 36" long jig body and guide rails are machined aluminum, while the cam locks and fences are glass-filled nylon. Capacity between the clamps is 29", and the router plate slides over the jig base to produce a 10" long crosscut. Lateral positioning of the workpiece is provided by an accurate cable-driven mechanism that also permits safe climb cutting for splinter-free routing across the grain.

The WoodRat™ converts any plunge router into a controlled three-axis milling machine. A versatile joinery tool, it excels at finger, lapped and housed joints; it machines standard and angled mortise and tenon joints, and cuts half-blind, through and sliding dovetails.

It will also mill molding profiles and produce rail and stile joints. Rather than relying on fixed templates, the cutter is guided by following a layout you create for each specific joint.

In essence, you produce a drawing of the joint and use the WoodRat™ to duplicate it. This removes the constraint of having to design joinery around your tooling, allowing you to develop an effective process to solve virtually any joint-making problem.

The WoodRat PlungeBar

The WoodRat PlungeBarDramatically improves the action of depthing your router. Depthing and fine adjustment is now a smooth, fingertip action thanks to the added leverage given by the bars. One hand brings the bars together, while the other is free to check the depth of cut.

Also, instead of having the router revving at 22,000 rpm with the bit dangerously exposed, you can keep the cutter safely concealed and drop it into the wood only when you're ready to cut. PlungeBars are easy to fit and require no permanent modifications to your router.
