I got a little carried away with these. I was looking for a simple solution to hold things down on the drill press table and ended up with these.

The cherry was salvaged from an old table top that had warped badly.

The pivot is a maple dowel. I made a set of 8 to use for other jigs.

The profile was from this thread http://lumberjocks.com/topics/25768.

The knob design came from one made out of brass here http://www.cnccookbook.com/MTMillBrassKnobs.htm.

Next up is a new table with a t-slot of some kind and a better fence.

Nice machine made parts .
Makes me wish I could afford a CNC , but that would take all of the fun out of woodworking.

A CNC machine is just an other tool. It adds to the fun of woodworking and is limited only by your own imagination.
I have used them in sailmaking and in woodworking and the sky is the limit.
