Being a Master of Making Do With Less I love making new jigs and fixtures for my wood working/carving. When I can use re-purposed material to make something for a fraction of the store-bought cost, I’m all in.
After months of looking at the abandoned satellite dish on the side of my house I decided to remove the eye-sore and put it to good use. By removing everything except the tracking adjustment mechanism and mounting the device on a home-made bench dog I had a great support/adjuster for a carving easel. As time passed, I added a set of stop blocks and a light support. Total cost, maybe a few bucks.
I added a photo of one of the carvings I made using this tool for authenticity.
