I am making a finger jig from plans now, it said that I should use hardwood 3/4” thick and 5 1/2” wide, but I find it difficult to find that around here.
I have bought what looks like pine, but the problem is, all timber that I get from my local DIY store are cupped, and when I flatten it with my router sled, I am left with just over 1/2 ” thick.
Why can’t I just use 3/4” ply which is always flat?
I have made other jigs from ply, and that is easy to get in good condition.
Your advice please.
