I got the idea for this jig from Photog and I basically copied his design. I have to say, that dude is really inventive and very creative. The jig saddles the fence on my saw and allows me to cut splines and tenons. The t-track allows me to rotate the fences on the face to either 45 or 90 degrees. I used some 1/4” dowels to help peg the fence in the right spot, then use a square to make sure it’s dead on. Suwat has several other features in his fence like thin strip ripping and resawing, but I doubt I’ll incorporate those for a while, if ever.

This jig will allow me to start working on more picture frames, a few flat panel cabinet doors, and some mortise and tenon joinery on a table.

thanks for looking.

go to this link for Suwat’s page:

You’ll see all the cool stuff he’s come up with there. He doesn’t have a plan, per se, but he does kind of walk through how to make the jig.

Hope that helps.
