I’ve had a few PM’s regarding the jigs I use to build Adjustable Trivets …
Click for details

On the first few I did, I just used the miter gauge on my table saw, and glued them by hand. Worked okay for a one-off situation, but when I decided to make them in batches, it became apparent that I needed some jigs to improve repeatability and speed up production.

With the tablesaw sled, gluing jig, and drill press jig I can knock them out pretty quickly.
