My first official jig built on the table saw, and for the table saw. Now I can make some tenons!

Very nice looking work. That either took patience, skill, or a mixture of the two. (I’m lacking both right now).

You did a great job on the jig, tight clean joints, and the tenon came out nicely.

NOW you’re gettin’ jiggy with it.

It’s working great Boaz. What are you making, anything in mind?

Thanks for all the comments. Had I had a dado blade, it would have been easier to build this jig. At first I couldn’t get the rails to be exactly 90 degrees to the sides, but after chiselling out carefully the leftovers from the set of cuts I have made with my 1/8” blade, it was much better. The dadoes still came out too wide, and there was some play, but it was okay after all.

My next project is going to be a frame & panel door using 3/4” poplar for the frame and 1/4” birch plywood for the panel.

Mark, I guess we both used the same plan for the jig. I just saw yours… Nice work on that.

Looks good…..I need to make one myself. What plans are you refering too? How about some shots of it in action?

Bob, I have found the plan in ShopNotes Vol 16 Issue 92 (“Seven must-have Table Saw Accessories”).

Very nice jig Boaz

For long time I’m planning to build one so maybe I’ll just copy yours with some small variations to fit my TS fence although, in EU working on the TS without blade guard is prohibited…

Niki, for a jig-master such as yourself, this will take less than an hour to finish ;)

Nice! We are kindred spirits. The ride-on-the-fence jig concept is a winner. It has come to my rescue more than a few times.

Have your say...
