Yet one more thin strip ripping jig. The same design as many, based on ShopNotes.

I decided to get away a little from the other unfinised projects this weekend and learn bent lamination wood.
So I needed this jig that turned out to be really usefull.

The only thing that was changed from the Shopnotes instructions was the placement of the miter bar.
I wanted to be able to use it on the table saw and the band saw.
Both these have a different distance from the miter to the blade.

I got lazy and did not set the router table up to route the groove on the top.
I simply drilled a bunch of holes on the drill press.

I ripped 41 strips of 2”x36” of oak and it did well.

Or use an Incra Fence on your table saw…

Hi Larry,

The boss put me on a leash so I had to play with the wooden toy.

I actually never thought about the incra fence although I hear everyone who owns one love it.
I must say that my incra miter gauge (1000se) does an excellent job.

Great looking jig. Another member posted a strip kayak project the other day… Now, I’ve got two projects calling out to me. I’ve got several sets of plans for strip canoes and kayaks. Too many projects and not enough time…

Really cool jig, I have bought the ball bearings, but not made the jig yet… One og these days…
I’ll follow your example, and make it fit both saws, when I get there.
Best thoughts,

HalDougherty, I know how it feels. I got so many projects I wanted to do but making a living takes all my time.

Thanks for the comment.

Mafe: I actually recycled my bearing from an old furniture. I learned to scavenge screws, hinges, slides pretty much any useable hardware. The price of those things is in my opinion outrtageous.

Thanks for looking.

Yeah, I like Shopnotes but it’s one I let lapse because I get tired of ALL the WW magazines sending me expiration notices when I was paid up for 2 years. That’s another thread. I will say I got a lot of ideas from them when I subscribed.

They pretty much all do that now. I get renewal offers 6 months ahead and expiration notices although, like you, I am 2 years in.
This year I waited past the expiration on 2 of the magazines. I got 2 years offer for the price of one. Good deal I would say.
