Hi Folks,

My first jig is a taper jig. Not much to say, there is a small hinge at the back of the Jig. I used 2” x 3” lumber to keep the weight down.

I needed to make scores of shelf supports for garage shelling as shown. I like this design, bracketts are fastened to vertical 2×4’s. The 2×4’s are screwed in the framing studs. Then I can put what ever shelf material I want across 2 or more of these supports.

Using the jig I made 40 brackets, all the exact same, in one afternoon.

This is great! You’ve convinced me to build one of these today. I’ve been making my taper cuts using the “nail to the board” method so far and it hasn’t been consistent. I’m definitely trying this. Nice work!
