« Part 2: Where there's a Jig, There's a Way Part 3 of Asian Cabinet series Part 4: Legs and Aprons »

Turned out that the jig I used to cut the mortise faces on the leg solved a more general problem, which allowed me to use the same jig for several other tasks.

As always a great video, just love ‘em all. Really educational, and the stuff you make are just phenomenal! Way out of my league but gives something to strive for!

Thanks for the demo, good video. Jigs are something I like to make (it may end up being my predominate interest in the hobby….....but what am I going to do with them?), currently working on a strange dust collecting….....fixture….I think you would call it. Also in progress is a super sled nearly done, and a unique project table top, that, although it is not finished, I am using constantly to do glue ups (using hold downs and the slots in the table top) for the dust collecting fixture, so I can finish routing the table top without throwing dust everywhere.

Just an old timer, still working, so I run a little short on time and energy…..........

Have a good one…...

Great video Brian…glad to see you are having the breakfast of champions!! Aren’t jigs wonderful but I always admire the guys who can design them for their specific purposes. Me?...I’m still learning.
