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, 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, Router Base - Self Centering Plunge

A plunge router is great for cutting mortises on the edge of a workpiece. The only trick is getting it centered. Here is a handy auxiliary base that will center the bit automatically, and it works with workpieces of just about any thickness.

Jig, Crown Molding - Slant Front Fence

One of the trickiest parts about working with crown molding is cutting accurate compound miters. But I found that attaching this slant-front fence to the miter gauge makes it much easier.

Jig, Cockbead Router

I had to round over some small strips for cockbeading to wrap some doors and drawers and remembered this tip that I read somewhere in a magazine. Because I was using the bottom of a multiprofile bit I wanted something to keep my big fat fingers safe.

Jig, Frame Miter Sled

This page contains plans for the frame-miter table saw sled I use for cutting frame-mitered ring segments. I use sleds for cutting segments because they can quickly cut perfect segments that require almost no sanding.

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, 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, 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.

Jig, Clamping - for Panel Door

When I decided to build a set of kitchen cabinets, I had to make and assemble about three dozen raised panel doors. Instead of using pipe or bar clamps for this task, I came up with my own clamping jig.

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.

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, Wood Strip Cutter

This table saw jig is made for cutting thin strips of wood. I have found that this strip cutter jig does the job more accurately and safely for thin strips than using a push stick or by moving the rip fence after every cut.
