Made a lot fences over the years, this time I used screws so it can be adjusted as it gets banged around / expands / contracts.
As I ad screws, I take the fence over to the BS table, and check it for square, if its off I add a shim.
Made it from melamine and scrap poplar, fence clamps and some adjustment shims. Sealed the exposed particle board edges with waterproof glue. Hopefully this will hold up for many years.
I use Teflon spray when the melamine gets a little sticky.
Whenever I have an order that qualifies for free shipping I buy some type of melamine shelf – The edges are square, so making jigs is that much easier.
Left the top stretcher a little low in case I decide to cut down.
Added a hole to hang it up for temporary access. Generally I store jigs flat, they tend to warp when hung up.
took about 30 min to make.
