I need to flute some 8 ft long boards that are 6 and 8 inches wide. I have thought about using a router and a fence. However since each board will have between 5 and 7 flutes running it's entire length the chance of the fence drifting off the straightedge is real. I thought about using a template guide and building a template by essentially cutting a groove the width of the template guide the length template. Then figure how to secure it to the board and be able to index it over to make each flute. That seems complicated. I have also thought of a using a router table and running the board through that but again the it is complicated and the chance of the board pulling away from the fence is still there. Any of you guys have any ideas?
