Since I very seldom use the Tenoning Jig I mounted it up out of the way (see first picture.

Pics 2&3 show jig as it is mounted on hanging bracket. Note it is off center for balance sake.

Pics 4,5&6 show the mounting bracket components. All components are .75” plywood, screws and metal “L” corner braces.

The Base Board measures: 7” x 14.5”

The Holding Board measures: 4.75” x 6.5” and 1.5” x 4.75”

The French Cleat is 2.75” x 7” with a like piece on the wall.

The Standoff board is 1.25” x 7”

The metal braces are 2” x 2” x .5” (I think)

I put a .75” channel in the base board for the guide to nest in. I use the screw clamp to tighten the holding board against the Jig to hold the Jig to the Mounting Bracket. A simple solution to get the Tenoning Jig up and out of the way. I did not put a finish on the plywood. Everything is glued and screwed.

Great solution!

This jig is big, awkward, heavy, and a pain to store.

Adding to my favorites.

Nice idea. Sure beats shoving it under the saw.

Hope you find it useful. Sometimes the simplest solution is the easiest. I too am living in Texas just north of you a bit, in Huntsville. Mike

Lee if you have a 1’ x 2’ space on the wall you’ve got space to make one for yourself.

Wait – you mean I don’t have to trip over my tenoning jig every time I walk past it?

Great idea! I’ll guess you’ll see a few of these posted in the future (especially if I don’t procrastinate)

I bet I could adapt that to my pegboard storage. Great idea!

Thanks for looking guys glad I could be of help.
Holt I would suggest mounting your French Cleat on your support 1×2 that you use to have your pegboard stand off the wall since a Tenoning Jig is quite heavy. Luck to ya.

Oh, and I suppose you think you should be expecting a cooked meal or something. Your wife just wants that table cleared so she has a place to overhaul her Harley now….duh! Old novice, boy do you have a lot to learn yet.
