Building a Bar Mirror for my wife. The original instructions call for dowel pins but after seeing an article and watching a vid on you tube I liked and decided that a loose tenon is more preferable to dowel pin.
This rig took me about 2 weeks on and off to complete it. I took ideas from others and then incorporated my own. The jig can hold vertical and horizontal stock, I can set the stops once and duplicate the setup easily each time. I made a fitting bar that is under that fits into my table slot for ease of setting it up and the only thing that I did to make it more secure was to put a simple screw tab on the rear so when I place this on my bench it is a small screw that I put in and I am ready.
