Topic tags/keywords: jig

Hey all,

Nice to meet you!

I did a brief search but didn’t see this topic, but I’m sure it’s been done. So just post a link if you don’t feel like answering again.

My favorite part of woodworking isn’t the building of some piece of furniture or trinket, it’s actually building the jigs that I use for these things. So post your favorite shopmade jigs, for any tool or purpose. Doesn’t matter how simple or obvious, I’d just love some new projects!

I made this jig for the dados for the shelves of a CD Holder. Thousands of dados and all of them straight, unless my students forget to secure the clamp correctly.

I have made five or six different jigs, but the one i use most is my crosscutting sled, followed by my miter sled.

45 degree sled. Made of aluminum sheet and angle. Aluminum runners. 45 degree sled
Here’s the bottom side.
runners for sled

Another sled, this one’s adjustable for the angles other than 45. We used to make alot of Round and Racetrack type conference tables that had a solid wood (8/4×4” wide) that surrounded a laminate center panel. The 16 pc. round frames were cut on this.
