I made this jig to help hold odd shaped logs and such to cut up for turning.

I looked at a few different jigs and came up with this design.

The aluminum guide comes out with one screw then the sled can be used on the inboard side of the blade, up against the small fence. I’ve used other hold downs with this too, that depends on the size of the item your’re trying to hold.

Great design.
I like the screw hold downs at the end of the log rather than in the middle. Great idea!

Nice jig. I built a similar one based on an article in American Woodworking (I think) several years ago. It is about 4 feet long but doesn’t have the adjustment arrangement you built in. Very nice design.
