I recently started making children’s swings. I think I posted one as a project some time ago.
I’m starting to get orders so as with all things you do repetitively I came up with a couple of jigs to speed up the process.
The first is a simple block I can screw to my cross cut sled to make multiple pieces the same size. Now I’m glad I just have a plain old piece of 3/4” plywood for a base. I don’t mind making holes in it.
The second is a thin strip gauge I made after seeing some ideas here on LJ.
I need to cut a lot of 3/8” stuff so this really speeds up the process.
Just a simple wood screw to act as the pusher.
