I'm glad I stopped to post these pics. 

I'm glad you posted those pics, too.  I got a Mortise Pal from a garage sale some time back, but had little to no idea how it worked. 

Looking at the size of your router and the size of your workpiece, I'm surprised that the router's weight was supported, but obviously it worked.

I have manuals in PDF format for both versions.  I PM'd them to you.

My most nefarious wallet-emptying nemesis . . . Lee Valley.  Seriously a glove will do the job but the knob is a lot nicer and allows more control.

How does the offset feel? I turned a quick cap knob for the end of my rasp, but it's just stuck on the end.

Good observation.  A rag in the hand or a glove feel more "natural".  The knob feels more precise.  If I am roughing things like a Maloof leg I will just use a glove.  I was basically using the rasp to "plane" the flat surface of the part shown in the pic so the knob felt much more accurate. YMMV.

Making something special for the couple is such a heartfelt idea. The cutting board and the custom picture frame are thoughtful gifts that they'll cherish. It's cool to see how much thought you're putting into the design, especially with the leather straps – adds a unique touch for sure.Speaking of plans, I was just wondering how everything turned out with that. Follow-ups on great topics are always interesting! They must have been very happy to receive such a thoughtful gift, especially after going through all the stress of wedding planning.
