I want to share with you how I made this wide adjustable featherboard from a 9’’ by 12’’ pine scrap. As shown, I cut one end at 30° at the table saw using the miter gauge then I drew a parallel line two inches from this cut. I use a plunge router and a 1/4’’ straight bit to mill the slots, well set on my small multipurpose benchtop table. The slots can also be made with a jig saw. The saw kerf on the runners, so they won’t split under pressure, have been cut at the scrollsaw.

Have fun and work safely! Thanks for looking and feel free to comment (I’m still learning).
