My good buddy and I built the fingernail gouge sharpening jig. (built him one also). It came out of an idea from a magazine, pretty much like all these things, except my “stick-man”. I was too cheap to buy one…. lol You can do a lot with scraps that are lying around.

Did the inspiration come from the Budweisor? Seriously. I like it.

Ohhh yes, jigs, jigs and more jigs. It becomes a addiction, as the tools.

I like homemade jigs. Those are real nice.

My problem is not having enough room to store them.

Hey I have an identical sharpening jig lol. Looks nice! I still need to make the fingernail profile jig but since I dont have a drill press yet, drilling a 50-60 degree angle cut wont be easy. I was thinking of making a wedge and then drilling it on my lathe with the wedge to help the angle. nice job though.

I reckon it’s just like clamps – every woodworker always needs another jig.
