Why if we can cut a tenon on a table saw router table or band saw with out a jig device do we purchase or make devices to create them?
I tseems is so simple with a few carefully measured cuts the job is done.
So I ask very seriously why? What am I missing.
This question also applies to the myriad of accessories that you are told you need because you discover that if you did not know they existed you would have made it yourself out of necessity from scraps and felt proud that you did.
It is my opinion, that it also much more fun to create a jig or accessory.
Save the money for great blades and good tools.
