We have had a great many requests from our viewers and community group members to explain a quick and easy to cut a juice groove into a cutting board. On the surface it seems like an easy task, but it’s not as simple as all that. There must be a guide fence of some sort for the router to ride along, and a stop at either end. Also, it’s important that these are the exact same all the way around the cutting board so that the corners of the groove line up just right.

It’s possible to create a one-off jig, just by screwing some pieces to a surface to accomplish this. But, what if you make lots of cutting boards to sell at craft fairs? Or you make several as gifts, and what if they are all different sizes?

We tried to answer that with this jig. It’s a pretty simple project. And it will allow you to quickly readjust to a new cutting board size in a few seconds, and then cut a perfect groove in about a minute.
This project is for all of you who asked us to help come up with a solution. The total project is a combination of many other youtubers’ work that we have seen and a bit of our own engineering thrown in.
