I’m starting a project that will use my dove tail jig to make some box like items.
One of the things that you must do is use ‘scrap’ to setup the templates.
The scrap must be the the same thickness as the work piece.
So, while cutting the work pieces, since the table saw was setup already, I cut some scrap pieces to
the same thickness as the work pieces.
Experience is a wonderful thing.

Experience is sometimes underrated. I know that from experience! I am hoping I don’t have to work to hard at retirement in Coastal Oregon soon.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!
