Without a doubt this is the most complicated jig I ever built.
The store didn’t have two 4ft rods but they did have an 8ft one. So I decided to buy the 8 ft one and cut it in half. When I got it home I realized oh no there are no pilot holes for the finals in the cut ends.
So I made this jig to allow me to drill a fairly straight hole into the end of the curtain
rod/any 1-3/8” dowel.
Drilled into a chunk of 2×4 with a 1 3/8” forsner bit, I used the nipple to drill an 1/8 hole through the rest of the 2×4 and this was the drill guide. The tape is because the rod isnt quite 1 3/8” like it said it was.
