« Part 4: How to Set Up a Hand Plane before Shaving Part 5 of DIY Jigs / How-to Woodworking series no next part

Hi there!

The nature of the project is so simple that I do not even need to upload so many photos, with just one is enough. The results, to be concise, is that this little jig has been very simple to do it and very effective at the same time.

As a detail I can mention that I have covered the corners with a 1 mm acrylic sheet, this makes the blade does not touch directly the magnets to does not loose the alignment. In the following video you can watch my step by step to do it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmvylDzE2sI

Hopefully it will be useful for someone, and thanks for reading!

Nice jig. Why did you use plywood?

Because I had little time to do it, since it is to cut a series of very small pieces for an order. Thank you!

Plywood or no, a very clever jig.
