« Part 1: Design and getting started Part 2 of Quarter Round Display Shelf series Part 3: Sockets and Pins Oh My! »

I have been working on the overall project for the last several weeks. The panels and shelves glue ups are done and the initial sanding is done. Next up on the list was to turn the shelves from squares to quarter rounds. So it was time to stop and start making the jigs needed for the project. The Rounding Jig and The Quarter Rounding Sled, the Sliding Dovetail Socket jig, and the router fence for the Pins.

The Rounding Jig is based upon Norms, however my little 9” BS was not up to the task so I modified the design to work with the router table.

The Quarter Round Jig is also Norms, after testing I added the hold down clamps and the handle. The blanks are cut to rough size using the Jig Saw and then put on the sled and the rounding is completed at the router table.

Here are the shelves, almost to final size (Left some room to play with)

The nice thing afterwards was I able to add to the wall-o-jigs! The handle and the hold downs came off of course.

Next up the Sockets and Pins!

that is a serious jig, but to be honest, my bigest jealousy is the “wall of jigs”. I always wanted a space to do that, but need to reorganize everything before it will be an option.

Is this the lumber that overflowed your dustcollector?

Then end results looks great. I think the sprial cutting bits are worth the extra $.

That roll-up door is 8 1/2’ tall in the up position. All of that space above it is practically useless otherwise so I declared it as space for my Wall-o-Jigs ;) Not many up there right now, but get it time…
