Last week I have decided to make my own version of a jig to done fingerjoint

I have been inspired with a lot of jigs posted on this site.

The first idea was the security :

The piece of wood is clamped with the front piece of MDF and the second
I’ve added a handle to be sure that my hand is used and the front piece guard my second hand behind it

The second piece can move to the left or the right to ajust the fingerjoint

This is not a revolution but I ilke it

I have done a try with two piece of MDF (Pic 6)

Comments welcome
