Anybody done it??

Spent some time, again today, using the tenoning jig on the table saw.

Ping. Pow. Zzzzzzing!

The cutoffs fly in a pretty wide area, and at a pretty random trajectory.

So … I’ve been thinking about Tenoning Jig Cutoff Golf, for the low-flying ones, and/or Tenoning Jig Cutoff Basketball, for the high-flyers.

Just a few strategically placed buckets—either high, low, or in between, and the assignation of a certain number of points per cutoff IN the bucket.

I guess the right cutoffs could even be used in Tenoning Jig Cutoff Darts, but … I shudder to think.

Anybody on this, already, or … did I just invent something ?

I usually just use my face or some other portion of my body to keep score of the hits.

Hey Neil. Maybe you should make your shoulder cuts after the vertical ones. I’ve never had that problem cutting tenons on the table saw so I’m not sure about this advice or even if you are already doing it that way. If it doesn’t work I won’t charge for it. Lol.

Lew: Aaaahhhhh, yes. I forgot about the much sought after Bullseye :-)

Mike: That’s it. I’m sick of Norm.

He makes the shoulder cuts first, but … you’re right (again??): if I make them afterward, it probably would nuke the Olympic Exhibition Sport element of it.

If you figure out the rules for the game, and a point system let me know. I’m sure there are others on LJ’s that would love to beat your high score. :)
