This is my jig for the contest. I call it the wood jack jig.The jig is used for supporting a work piece that sits on top of the wood that is clamped in a vice, like when tracing the tails of a dovetail to the pin board. Its nicer than trying to adjust the work to you hand plane since you adjust the jig to the work piece! Or you could use it when drilling and screwing in a butt joint! The jig is not complicated to make. I got the idea from shopnotes. I just used scrap around the shop. This is a great time to use those small pieces of ply that you don’t want to throw out! I used 3/4’’ pine ply for all the parts. The little knob is for locking everything down. I didn’t have a plastic knob so I just made my own! Gave it a sand put some polly on it along with some wax and it’s done! If you need to support some extra large wood you can make more than one.
I love this jig, I think it’s a real time saver!
