I made this jig completely from scraps for leveling small boards or cutting boards.
I secured the rails with screws only so I can increase the height to work with thicker pieces.
It works with my bench vice and dogs to hold the jig in place and secure the piece you are leveling at the same time.
I had to remake it after my first attempt because I assumed the ply I was using for the base was flat …
I have some small changes to make to approve on it. I should have made the sliding clamp a tighter fit and the rails would be better if they extended past the rest of the jig a few inches to allow you to keep the sled straight all the way to the end of the work piece.
I am using a Magnate 1 1/2 bit for the leveling.
Thanks for looking
