I had so much fun building this. I built a pantry for my wife and we needed to get some bull nose trim (which is insanely over priced by the way) so I made this tool from shop notes and we made our own. simple and slick, do you like my recycled cabinet knobs from the 70’s? waste not want not

I get shop notes too and saw that jig in there. I guess I’ll have to make me one too. Nice job. If I would have made one I wouldn’t have lost the tip of my finger….

Nice jig, gotta make me one. I do love the chartreuse cabinet knobs! Gives it higher cool factor.

I will have to look and get the issue number for you. I really like the green knobs. I made it in only a few hours.

It is a jig for your tablesaw, the jig mounts in the miter slot to the left of your saw blade, and back towards the forward/infeed side of the blade. you zero the jig on the blade tooth. Next set it for how thick or thin you want the strip. take your peice of wood and put it up against the bearing on the jig, then adjust the saw fence to the egde of the wood. All you have to do is turn on the saw and rip the strip, trun the saw off, place the peice of wood up against the bearing readadjust the saw fence, turn on the saw and rip the next strip. What you are doing is cutting the thin strip away from the fence instead of the other way around. Its much safer and you can repeat the cut over and over with ease. Itried to describe it as best I could, I hope I did ok.

I have made this jig too but I don’t like the contuous adjustment of the table saw fence .. instead steve Maskery of workshop essentials came up with another thin strip ripping jig that seems better IMO where the saw fence needs no further adjustments.
