Made these because it is much cheaper than buying them and they are dirt simple to make. Accurate and simple to use also.

You could buy the setup blocks here or make them from plywood. I made them from a cheap plywood but I would recomend making them from birch plywood instead. I use them to setup a depth stop on my mortiser and for height on table saw and router. Many more uses though.

The circles I cut out using my hole saw kit I got from leevalley. I mainly use them for marking round corners. Easier than looking for just the right sized margarine dish or soup can. Made from MDF. Can also be used to trace templates or follow curves. Similar to leevalley kit here,42936,50298
