I build this jig out of scrap wood to keep the pull saw straight while cutting the slots to receive the fret wire.

Thanks Dennis! I added a photo with a piece of rosewood mocked up in the jig.

I made my miter box out of MDF and has served well for more than 10 guitars.

I’m liking all the jigs. I have a Taylor GS5 style blue print that I’m saving for when I have more time. This just makes me want to get started. Thanks for sharing.
