Its been awhile since i’ve posted but i still check out the great projects all the LJ’s are making and continue to enjoy the site. Im getting ready to start building some dressers for my boys. I made a tenoning jig a year or so ago, but it was out of mdf and the accuracy was fading. So i decided i needed to build a new one and after seeing tdv’s version, I decided to make my version. There are two 1/4” alum bars used. One you can see under the router sled, the other is perpendicular and underneath of the platform. So it has x and y axis movment. The stops do not hold down the router sled, the router sled is held on the table by a lap joint seen in the “fuzzy picture”. Sorry lol.. The rail with the stops has 5 screws in it, 2 happen to be covered by the stops. I’ve also thought about and will probably add a micro adjustment at the back so i can dial in tenons if i choose to route them on the ends of the work. The router sled slides very smoothy too. The hole is about 3” in diameter so i can see what im doing. Oh, the platform has a 1 3/4” adjustment from front to back. Sometimes i enjoy building the jigs as much as the projects produced on them.
