Jig, Picture Framing

Like many jigs this jig was born of frustration and the expense of the currently available frame clamps, and there are many expensive and useless clamps to choose from.

Jig, Router Circle (Video)

Cutting large holes or circular recesses usually involves buying large, expensive drill bits. And if you could not find the right size, you were simply out of luck. But with this router circle jig, a plunge router, and a long, 1/2 inches-dia. bit, you will be able to easily rout recesses and holes as small as a half-inch, as large as 4 inches, or anywhere in between.

Jig, Table Saw Insert with Splitter

I use a shop-made splitter that is built into my throat opening insert. It also has the advantage of being a zero-clearance insert, narrow pieces can not fall down between the blade and the opening in the insert. Here is how I made mine.

Jig, Cutting Identical Slots

I recently built a large entertainment center that needed several identical slots cut in it for cord and cable access. Cutting them was not difficult. But getting them all identical, with clean edges was another story. To do this, I used a handheld router and a pattern bit guided by a shop-made template.

You do not need a jointer to get a straight, square edge on a board. An L-shaped auxiliary fence makes it easy to joint a board on a table saw (see Photo at this link).

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, Pilot Hole Guide

After cutting a snug-fitting mortise for a butt hinge, you have one more challenge to face. You still have to drill the pilot holes for the screws. It sounds easy, but I often have trouble centering the pilot holes so that the hinge is held squarely in the mortise.

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.

Jig, Router Edge Guide

I have been using my hand-held router a lot lately. For one project, I had to rout some stopped dadoes. With this kind of cut, an edge guide is almost a necessity. And although most router manufacturers offer an edge guide as an accessory, it is really no trouble at all to build your own. As you can see in the photo, it is just a replacement base made of hardboard with an adjustable hardwood fence.
