This is a super simple jig that has been around since dinosaurs (the carpenter dinosaurs). I recently had the need to make one so I figured I would shoot a quick and to the point “how to” on it. I hope it may be of use to some of you out there.

Three pieces of scrap plywood (preferably hardwood plywood), some glue, and 7 screws.
