The second most useless Jig ever made.

So working an a Large project with huge drawers, Thanks to successful brain washing blue Kool-aid advertisements, I though I would NEED a pair of these Drawer Mounting Brackets before I could mount rails and I figured since my drawers were going to be big I might as well make these over-sized.
But after I made them and wasted a precious top grade woods and time, I realize that I can mount rails without this gimmicky jig much faster and accurately.
Lesson learned.
Why oh why did I take the blue pill and use water resistant glue and so many nails….

OK, you got my interest up, what was the most useless jig?

When I make one, It will be #1 but I’m sure there are few around the net that qualify for that spot.

Hey bud,
Coming from working with metal,
I can’t count how many of those useless jig I made.
Thanks for sharing.
I might have to copy that for the drawers I’m making for the bed frame I just finish

Don’t bother metal man :-) easier to install rails without thisjigs. just use a spacer from bottom of a drawer, align rails and that’s it.
