Several TandJ plans call for a 1/16" kerf. I am having difficulty finding a tool to make such a small kerf. Any suggestions?

i used to use an ordinary dremel burr against a steel rule which will do the job, but have found a 1/16" router bit for it and now use the router base and a guide

they are generally for appearance sake so there are also other ways of getting that ... sometimes i use a pyrography pen and make teh outlines of doors etc with it

Hi Byron, I use a laser to cut following templates to use a trimmer or a Foredom on.

I appreciate that may not be the recourse to everyone, but as a suggestion, try these two sites,

If you need ideas with models and start banging your head against a brick wall, check out Projects on Lumberjocks by Dutchy, htl and Pjonesy... there are many more contributors but those 3 tend to go into good micro detail..
Also a handy link to pick up is htl's general building tips and jigs which he has indexed under,

Good luck!
There are two ways of doing things,,, My way or the right way.
