A jig featured in Woodworkers Journal April 2013.
My brother and I built this jig and a table for their living room during a recent visit.
Jig is 3/4” pine plywood base, hickory registration blocks, poplar tenon guides, and red oak miter slot runner.
Works really well.
Table is 20” x 21” red cedar all tenon frame. The lower shelf is secured with dowels. No nails or screws used.
I didn’t list dimensions because mine is 100% scrap and differs from the published specs.

A great idea if you don’t have a lathe.

That looks really handy and simple to build. I like the different sized templates. Thanks for another winner!

Thanks for all the comments, whitebeast88 I have a small sawmill and saw my own, some from storm downed trees, some for half the wood from logs brought to me.
