Jig, Miter Saw - Wide Angle

A miter saw is a handy tool around the shop for a number of jobs. But what if you need to make angled cuts beyond 45 degrees? My solution was to build a jig that held the workpiece perpendicular to the fence on the miter saw.

Jig, Indexing

Featherboards are a great way to hold a workpiece firmly against a fence or table surface. But there is more to a featherboard than just sawing kerfs in the end of a board. The problem is cutting evenly-spaced kerfs so the fingers flex just the right amount. With the indexing jig shown below, cutting the kerfs is easy and accurate.

Jig, Drill Press Pocket Hole

The pocket hole joint is one of the easiest joints to make. This joint is much faster and simpler than dowel joints because you only drill the hole in one of the pieces you need to join. You simply apply some glue, clamp the pieces together, and insert the screw.

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, Wooden Gear Cutting

There is nothing that symbolizes machinery like gears. Seeing that I like to make machines out of wood, it follows then that I should want some of these machines to have gears on them. Wooden gears, of course. [Editor Note: This link does not have much in the way of measurements, but still useful info.]

Jig, Rip Fence Setup Gauge

When setting the rip fence on my table saw, I used to check the distance between the fence and my saw blade with a tape measure. But trying to hold the end of the tape against the rip fence and adjust it at the same time took more coordination than I could muster. So instead, I made a simple set-up gauge.

Jig, Molding Alignment

Recently, I was building the Cottage-style dresser featured in the June 2002 issue of Workbench. To dress-up the drawer fronts, I wanted to use small strips of half-round molding. The trick was trying to position the strips on each false drawer front so that they aligned from one drawer to the next.

Jig, Ripping Thin Strips

Ripping several thin edging strips to the exact same thickness -- such as those you would use to edgeband a cabinet -- can be tricky. The answer is to use a simple indexing jig to set up each cut.

Jig, Compound Miters on a Table Saw

Crosscuts and miters are easy to cut on a table saw with the help of a miter gauge. But cutting a compound miter is a little more of a challenge. That is because you have to tilt the saw blade and then adjust the miter gauge to make this cut. Instead, I like to use a slightly easier method for cutting accurate compound miters.

Jig, Disc Flattener

Sanding discs tend to curl up when not in use. I find this a real hassle when trying to place a PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive) or hook and loop disc on my sander, especially if I don not get it on straight the first time. So I came up with a small shop jig that helps keep them flat.

Tablesaw Hold-down jig

This is a free online video for the sliding hold-down jig as it appears in the ShopNotes Magazine Issue No. 96. When ripping narrow strips or cutting a rabbet along the edge of a workpiece, it is sometimes hard to keep the board flat against the saw table. And if you use the featherboard, it can get in the way.

Jig, Circle Sanding

When I need a circular workpiece for a project, I don not try to get it perfect the first time. Instead, I start by cutting the workpiece to rough shape. Then to make quick work of sanding the edges smooth (and getting the disk perfectly round), I use a simple sanding jig and a disk sander, as shown in the photo at left.
