Topic tags/keywords: jig dado fine woodworking article

As many of you already know, I have an article in the new issue of Fine Woodworking Magazine.
What I didn’t know was they also did a video on their website on how to use the jig. I just watched it and was pleased at Steve’s presentation.

Thanks to Steve Scott, the associate editor I worked with. He did a great job with the video.

I am not sure if you have to be a member of Fine Woodworking’s web-site to see this, but here is the link.

That looks great Kent ,That’s a very good up grade from the old shop notes version . It would have been nice if the would have given you credit for your design or better yet let you do the video. I guess you still could do your own You tube Video? great job like all the work you do. Congrats on the article and video.

While he did a good presentation, I have seen your video skills and I am sure you would have done a great job of explaining your fabulously simple yet effective jig.

What a great dado jig Kent, the best I’ve ever seen. Great video presentation too. I haven’t got my FWW mag. yet, as it is always pretty late coming to Norway, but I look forward to seeing your article there and having the opportunity to study the details of your jig more closely. You are a truly gifted woodworker.

I just watched the video and I’m on my way to Home Depot to buy a copy of the magazine. I’ve been cutting dadoes with a simple jig for a while and your jig looks like the best one I’ve seen.

Nifty jig Kent!
I’m filing that one away for future reference. Very good design.

Just got my issue the other day and found your article. Excellent piece. Very classy jig. I have one that I clamp to the boards for a straight line….but yours is much more suitable for the purpose.

I will have to add this jig to my arsenal as soon as I can get the time to make another one…..now I just need a place to store all my jigs….will have to build another shop just to store them…I’ve lost count of all the jigs I have made….
