Sweet build. Great results. Just for grins try doing box joints on your pantorouter. I know you love a challenge :).

That is a neat looking Jig. Thanks for showing.
-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

I started watching that video several times since he posted it and I keep getting called away, looks like a great project.

Thanks for the tip! I just bookmarked I built it. So many useful items there. Really like your box jig. That joint was to be next on my learning curve and This would definitely be a good head start.

Looks awesome, very nicely done. Is that your sharpening jig moon-lighting as a smart-phone holder? LOL Gotta love stuff that can multi-task.

Thanks all, it was a fun little build, took just a day and simple build.
Lee – I will have to try building a finger-joint pattern this week indeed.
Rick – I have my days too, easily distracted.
Jeff – It’s a very easy build, at least I thought so. It’d make a great head-start project.
Lucas – that is indeed my sharpening guide holding my phone lol. Luca

ya, that guy sure makes some neat stuff. been watching his weekly updates for several months now. if I had any UHMW or similar plastics I’d be out making this jig myself. you share the same idea I had with the screwed on spring instead of the glue-on he had done.

Yes he does Von. I didn’t have the time…ok patience to wait for Titebond II to dry, ableit it’s pretty quick to dry.

Very neat jig. At first glance, I was about as confused as your dog looks about it. :-)

Thanks Charlie, yeah that’s Brandy, she’s a good dog, mutt with Whippet in her we think. Didn’t even realize she was giving me the “what’cha dragging out of the garage, this time” look. :)

how did you finish it, to get this tiger stripes look?

Damien I used a micro-torch, just playing around with it. Baltic Birch plywood has an ok grain, but Poplar hardwood isn’t too exciting. Realize it’s just a jig, but as an artist I couldn’t leave things well enough alone.
