This was jig weekend for me, after seeing so many examples of great jigs on here, I whipped up what I could in the little time I had, now when I get a bit more time I will make some projects with them, and make them look a little nicer!
All of these jigs are my take on what I’ve seen here, and Steve Ramsey’s Mere Mortals videos.
This one I made the runners out of maple and the sled with MDF hoping that it doesn’t wear out that fast because I won’t use it as much as I will use the crosscut or my box joint jig.
When I started this mitre jig I forgot to check how high my blade will raise on my TS with the slab of 3/4” mdf on it, and then after I put the first little arm on the left side of the jig, I realized I couldn’t cut the whole thing off, so that’s why it looks a little bit funky on the cut line at the top, I had to free hand it with my circular saw, but I assure you its dead on 45 degree where it matters!
