Adjustable Taper/Ripping Jig
I wanted to make a ripping jig and I researched and saved many ideas. The best I found that suited my needs was the adjustable taper/ripping jig from Woodsmith Shop.
This jig can be used both on the Table saw and your Router Table. It’s an adjustable jig so you can cut tapers, make odd angled cuts, and straight line ripping. The jig can be also used as a long hold down sliding platform on your router table.
I’ve chosen to make mine on 3/4 marine plywood and cut my own t-tracks instead of following the plans suggestions. The jig’s guide rail is also marine plywood joint and glued with biscuits and for the adjustment bar I used red heartwood.
Also I didn’t make any hold downs, instead I used some aluminum hold-downs and wing-nuts instead of normal nuts to easily adjust the bars height.
Here is the plans LINK to follow for step by step instructions on how to build this.
