I wanted to try bending some wood for up coming projects so I made a small
addition to my miter gauge. I now can cut evenly spaced kerfs. It took me
a few trys but know I have it figured it out!

nice jig! – I could’ve done with it six months ago, I needed to curve a skirting board in an arc. I did mine free hand on a bandsaw – the curve was not smooth :(
If I may, can I copy your jig and redo?

A tip for this jig. When you get your desired curve if you put glue in the kerf and then in a clamp (jig that holds the kerf cut board in the desired position) when the glue dries it will hold that position and makes for a stronger, durable finish piece. Oh, also use wax paper between the glue and clamp so it will not stick to the clamp. I have been using this method for years and it works very successfully.

Jack I have been looking at your Jig

Nice wood effect paint on the jig itself and insert where did you get the paint from?

Sure your name is not really Noah ?

Great craftsmanship skills demonstrated there!!

Nice post !
