Miter Key Sled
This jig is from Shopnotes Vol 20 issue 116. They build it as “Dovetail Key Jig” for the router table.
Well there is no reason why it can’t be used for both Miter key and dovetail key since it has a removable backer insert as seen in the 4th picture.
For now I am going to use only on the tablesaw. I cut a dozen extra inserts so I have them handy in case I use it on the router for a dovetail key.
Fairly easy to make from left over 3/4” thick plywood pieces.
foldable work table
The second project is a foldable work table from American Woodworker website they call “Instant surface”:
They have a heavy duty one: http://americanwoodworker.com/blogs/shop/archive/2002/04/28/heavy-duty-folding-work-table.aspx
I made 2 of the “Instant surface” for when I assemble longer projects. Those are going to be life savers since they hardly take any space when folded.
I used a mixture of pine, oak and ash for the legs; all leftovers. The hinges are from an old kitchen cabinet (I collect hardware).
All half lap joints were cut on the table saw
