    The dog bones are most definitely handy.
    Sometimes I just want to look at pretty pictures,... Thats when I go to the Turners Forum

Make sure you select the same diameter bearing to match your router bit.

    I own a CNC Router which is how I would machine your project but this method is foolproof and easy to reproduce a project like yours. Since I often route 3 to 4 hundred door signs on the average project I stopped using a router bit with a bearing because the bearings get clogged up with Corian dust very frequently.
    Keith, I think the pin router attachment is the way to go, although I can't find it on Lee Valley's website. I see other attachments from other makers. Let me know if you can find it. Looks like I can just locate the original part on top of the work piece, then follow the inset and hog out the rest. Thanks so much!

    Thanks Keith. I saw that, but couldn't find anyone that still has it. I ended up ordering one from MLCS. It's not very pretty and refined, but it looks like it does the same thing. Guess I'll find out.

    I just called Veritas to find out if they still sold the pin router and found out it was discontinued awhile back. Sorry for sending you outdated information.
    The MLCS pin router should work for you though, don't forget that you can use the pin router and templates to cut letters and numbers should you ever have the need.

    No worries. The Veritas one is cool looking, but probably would cost a lot more than the no-frills one I'm getting. Actually, I can see several uses for it and it's the perfect solution to my question, so thank you.
