This was my first attempt at making a jig for my shop. I know that it isn’t much compared to most of the jigs on LJs, but I’m kind of proud of it. Mostly, because it is still around. I don’t know how many times I was tempted to throw it against the wall. It was quite a pain to keep things square and in line while drilling and screwing everything together. Ignore the extra holes, they were supposed to be there for looks but I didn’t feel like matching ‘em on both sides:-) The sled will be getting a test run soon.
The fact that I thought that it was going to be simple should have been enough to make me realize that it was going to be a pain in the butt. That’s how my brain works…. If I think that something is going to be simple, it turns out to be a pain. If I think that something is going to be hard, I stress about it, talk myself into doing it and it usually ends out being a lot easier than I thought.
I welcome all positive criticism. Fiiiiiiine, I welcome the constructive stuff as well.
