I have been meaning to build some jigs for various tasks around the shop for some time.Over the past couple of weeks I have been going through the “to build” list of jigs, using the left over board materials from my utility room renovation last summer. I have knocking them off one by one, here are a couple
Some are complete, some in the making and some still to be started. Like most things, the more you build the easier and quicker the process becomes it seems
The first few are for hand tools mainly, these two are my way of shooting accurate mitres, why I haven’t built them sooner I cannot say. However they do assist in ensuring accurate mitres, and best of all no screaming, dust producing chops saw required. I’m sure my ears and lungs will approve in the long term.
If you use hand tools, or even if you only use hand planes on occasion they are a must in the shop. Simple to build and will last a while if looked after.
