I’ve seen a lot of people asking about how to get a straight line on a board without a jointer. I don’t have a jointer, but I found this link at woodmagazine.com and thought it was immensely helpful. I followed the instructions to a T and created three jigs using one sheet of MDF just like the video suggests. I’ve used this so many times, I can’t even count. Every rough board that enters my shop gets one rip using this jig. Hopefully this helps some of you out some as well.
there are two pictures. One of the jig by itself, and one with a router showing how the router would be used. The really useful application is the circular saw side though. Sorry I don’t have a picture to go with that aspect of the jig.
