I’ve seen many an LJ build the little guys…but I have to be honest, I don’t know what you do with a Kerfmaker. What is it for?

The Kerfmaker is a tool made by Bridge City Tools Works. Here is a link to the Kerfmaker. Make sure you check out the video.

I am curious about how it works for cuts on the inside dimensions. Do you line up your first cut, set the stop block with your kerfmaker, then flip it to get the other side? It would be great if those of you who have made your own could do a little video or something showing how you use it. I really want to make one of these cause I think it will be really helpful, but I gotta get my cross cut sled done first.

-- If you can't build it, code it. If you can't code it, build it. But always ALWAYS take a picture.

depictureboy, you will really like using a kerfmaker on a sled. The wood stays steady on the sled and you need that so the end cuts are true for a good fit…......Jim
