My 1st pie crust tilt top table #2
Were we left off was getting ready to make a jig to make a jig.
next I take a straight edge and make lines corner to corner and then lines from the half way mark forming an X across the center of our melamine. Now I take a measurement half way between the other marks and draw a line between them.
Mistake… I was in a hurry and got my lines off so I did not have equal spacing.
Now I carefully drill a hole in the dead center of all the lines running through all the lines. It is important to have this hole parallel . So I took a piece of 2×4 and drilled a hole in the center to use as a drill guide.
Just barely drill a starter hole and then use the guide to drill no further than 7/16” deep
In the next installment we will start the process of shaping our jig to make our supplemental jigs
