I am pretty new to using a hand plane, but I am completely addicted to the process. I love making shavings. Last weekend I was flattening a board and found that the board moved around a bit. So I decided to make a jig. I just finished and it really holds the boards tightly.
The design allows for me to plane a board up to 13 1/3 inches wide. It will also handle very thin pieces. The jig is really over engineered, but that is just my nature. I included two rare earth magnets, just to hold the boomerang and wedge, when not in use.
For more details about how I put it together, I blogged about the process over the last 3 days.

Thanks for stopping in and checking out my jig.
