Jig, Strip Cutting Gauge

Thin strips should be cut on a table saw with the wide board against the fence and the fence moved in for each cut, however it is difficult to accurately adjust the fence for each strip to be the same thickness. This gauge allows you to simply...

Jig, Dowel Pin Cutting

Cutting multiple short dowel pins can be tedious work. So I made a simple dowel pin cutting jig to speed things up. This jig only takes a few minutes to make and set up on your table saw. Then it is easy to quickly cut dowels to equal length without measuring.

Jig, Miter Sled

The instructions listed below are for a sled that fits into the left mitre slot of the table saw and is for a blade that tilts to the right AWAY from the sled. If your saw has a left tilt arbor, reverse all the directions and drawings mentally to build a sled that fits into the right mitre slot. Easiest way to look at this to build the sled so that blade tilts away from sled. Shall we begin?

Jig, Fingerjoint - Homemade

The joints are always the weakest part of any piece of woodwork. Because of this, I am always obsessing over making better joints.

Jig, Tablesaw Hold Down

There are several things to think about when cutting a thin sheet of material on a table saw. Not the least of which is providing enough downward pressure so the sheet won not ride up inches over the saw blade, causing a potentially dangerous kickback.

Jig, Shelf Pin Holes

Alignment and spacing of the holes is fairly critical since you don not want shelves that sit crooked or wobble. To achieve uniform spacing for the holes, nothing works better than a layout jig.

Jig, Router Mortising - Cheap, Simple

Here is the jig I built recently; I pulled it from Gary Rogowskis book Router Joinery. It is simple and cheap to build. I just used some scrap 3/4 inch MDF. I made the base long enough to easily clamp on my Workmate. The sides are about 20 inches. The sides are rabbetted to make it easy to glue/screw them squarely onto the bottom.

Jig, Shelf Pin

I like drilling shelf pin holes in the top, bottom, and both sides of a box so that it can be used vertically or horizontally. But that means aligning and spacing of all those holes becomes fairly critical. After all, you do not want crooked or wobbly shelves. Nothing works better for uniform spacing than a layout jig.

Jig, Shelf Hole Drilling

This jig allows for evenly spaced shelf holes, if they have to be drilled with a hand drill in a pre-assembled unit. Only the position of the top holes on each side have to be marked, once they are drilled a pin goes into those holes through the top hole in the stepping block and the next hole is drilled.

Jig, Dowel

This jig requires one piece of hardwood 3/4 inches square X 5 1/2 inches inches long and one piece 3/4 inches X 2 1/2 inches X 5 1/2 inches long. Mark off the 5 1/2 inches long piece as shown below, clamp it to the 3/4 inches X 2 1/2 inches piece, 1 1/2 inches from the top edge and drill the four 1/4 inches holes. It would be best to use a drill press for this if possible as the holes should be square.

Jig, Beam Compass (for router)

Here are two photos of a jig I built for my router in less than half an hour. The two 1/4 inches threaded rods screw into the router base (they come from another off-the-shelf jig.) The wooden block is just some random piece of hardwood scrap.

Jig, Workbench Corner Hook

I have found that a bench hook that mounts over the edge of the workbench is a great way to hold a workpiece in place. But the traditional bench hook that I was using had one annoying fault. It would not always stay put. A sudden tip or slide along the bench was a common occurance. So I came up with the new and improved corner inches hook that you see here.

Jig, Drill Press

The work tables on most drill presses are designed for working with metal. For working with wood, we need a larger work surface and a more versatile way to clamp the work piece. This table, by use of T-Track , hold down clamps, and toggle clamps permits accurate clamping and positioning of the work piece.
