This is my homemade Mitre Jig. It looks like it could fly right off my saw but it really works good. I took the idea from David Marks and Homemade jigs and tips magazine. It is so easy to use and with the help of elongated wings I can mount stop blocks for those really long frames. It can accept a frame 2” thick and up to 8” wide. The runners are made from Walnut and are waxed for easy tracking. Thanks for looking!!!

This is another one of the jigs that I need to take time to build. Being an old air craft mechanic, I like the design.

Drew, nice to see a properly designed mitre jig. I see that yours does not permit the user to cut the short point first which is proper. Im amazed there are no more missing fingers than there are from many of the sleds I have seen. enjoy !

Thanks you guys! Cab maker yes I thought short point first would be easier but more dangerous because of eventual kickback or binding. I really like this jig and it works very well!
