This is a tenoning jig i just finished for my unisaw. I have a mirror frame to make for a customer and ive finally got fed-up without having a jig dedicated for this. I considered a few other styles that didn’t involve my saw fence, but its hard to pass up that nice biesemeyer unit. The jig is made entirely of 1/2 inch Baltic Birch plywood scraps.

I think I’ll build another one like this. I made one for my Craftsman but the fence was so narrow, that it was about useless. This one looks a lot more stable. I have a better saw now, I think I’ll make one like yours. I like the holes for the clamps, it beats fighting with a c-clamp.

-- I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you. I'm sorry,thanks.

I like it, The holes for the clamps are a nice feature.

I also have one similar. I was surprised how well they can work. Currently using it for bridal joints for some windows. Wish I had a fence like yours though. Fine adjustment would be good to have too.

Well done.

Aren’t those two screws on the lower end too low?
It looks like the blade might hit them.

those screws are too low for sure, haha….thanks for pointing out that design flaw Hskrfan, i almost had a collision with a freshly sharpened saw blade. i moved them up inline with the lower row of screws on the body of the jig
