Several people have posted these Table Saw Jointing Jigs so I take zero credit.

I originally wanted to use toggle clamps to hold the piece down while making the cut. However after watching a video on Jay’s Custom Creations, I decided to make my own using carriage bolts which worked Great! With this jig I can joint a 5’ long x 8” wide x 2” thick piece of material.

I used this jig yesterday to joint some rough cut Walnut for a table top, joints were perfect.

Ill be posting my Craftsman 4” jointer on Craigslist tomorrow. lol

Jay’s video below. thanks for looking.

I really like the way you put this one together. Seems like all of these jigs (or would that be a fixture??) are all built a little different.

These are great. I don’t have a joiner, and don’t really want/need one. These jigs can and will cut one edge of a board straight. To flatten one side of a board, use a thickness planner and a planner sled.

This is a great idea. I think I may do this myself. Thanks for posting.

Nice Idea I am looking at building one myself just not sure if I like your setup better then the toggle clamps but I have a couple of clamps at home so I will play with them and see.

-- Measure once, cut , measure again, cut and damn its still to short

It’s amazing how much precision and accuracy such a simple and affordable jig provides. I have made one as well, not such a beast model more moderate sized. They do work great and quick.
