Soundhole and Rosette Routing Jig

About This Item

Design update: now works for ukuleles, too!
Cut perfect soundholes and rosette channels for guitars and ukes.

Easy and accurate, this jig now adjusts from 6"-diameter to a small 2" cut for ukuleles.

Another innovation from StewMac
The Soundhole and Rosette Routing Jig is a quality machined tool, designed to be used with our Precision Router Base and works with your Dremel. Router base and rotary tools are not included.

  • Solid aluminum and brass parts
  • Adjusts from 2" to 6"-diameter cuts (50.8mm to 152.4mm)
  • Indexing scale to quickly set routing diameter
  • 3/16" registration pin for perfectly concentric circles
  • Mounting screws and instructions included

How it works
Attach the jig to the router base, then mount your Dremel or Foredom tool. Insert the registration pin through the center of the uncut soundhole, and into your work surface. Place the jig on the pin. Set the diameter of cut with the adjusting screw, and lock it down. The router base adjusts the cutting depth. Rout your rosette rings first, then cut out the soundhole.

For the cleanest cut when routing tonewoods, we recommend the Carbide Downcut Bits.

Routed my first rosette and binding channels with this jig and it worked perfectly. Like another user mentioned the base did leave marks on the soundboard but it sands off in minutes.

staining/leaving marks

Again this is a great tool. Very accurate. There have been some issues with the aluminum staining or marking the top as the cutter is turned. Also, I have noticed a couple of solutions offered. Try this. Get a blank self adhesive pick guard and attach it to the bottom of the jig. Trim and slightly bevel the edge and you are in business. Very smooth gliding across the spruce and mark free.

Let me start of by saying his tool is great and easy to use. It's very accurate and a nice addition to the arsenal of tools. There is one major issue though. The aluminum stained my cedar very badly and it took quite a bit of acetone and some sanding to remove it. For $50 and another $50 for the base you shouldn't have to worry about things like this. Any kind of thin varnish on the metal would protect the wood and prevent this. All in all performance is 5 star. The staining is about a 2.

Was immediately modded upon taking it out of the box to cut circles up to 161mm. But otherwise I must say this tool has astonished me with it's precision, ease of use, and utility.
