This is the first jig I have ever made. I saw something similar on youtube, and decided to try it out. The back, and main part of the jig is red oak. I drilled several holes in it to be able to clamp wood snugly depending on the length, and used some scrap pine for the front of the clamp with two 3” bolts. I glued a piece of 3/8” square poplar dowel in a slot cut on the bottom of the oak, and cut a notch 3/8” wide the same length away from the dowel. I use the rest of the dowel as a spacer so you can cut two boards at once and offset them properly so they fit together. So when I make my first cut, I just slide the stock over the dowel and cut again, repeating the process through the stock. The joints in the pic are a little proud, but they fit together nicely. I feel good about using this jig on something other than plywood now that I have seen what I can do with it.
