Default Using my dado jig

A member recently had a query regarding routing dados at an angle and my suggestion was to use a jig based on the one that I use. By sheer coincidence my brother-in-law who is building up a camper trailer using a trailer especially made for the purpose with 500mm sides compared to our normal 300mm asked me to make a folding table fitted to the inside of the tailgate. This is how it evolved, no drawing came with the tailgate! The hinged brackets were made from 40mm x 19mm Jarrah.
I've added a zip file.

Nice job Harry: You said that Your shop should look the way Yours did when working on a project. My shop looks that way when My shop is idle. I have way to many little pieces waiting to be put away, and a few jobs waiting to be finished. Hopefully, I will have time to build a toolbox that all my tools fit into, I am old enough that I wouldn't need any big layout in My life. Always open to a great way to put all tools in a small space, and still be able to take each out when needed.Very nice set of photos to tell Your story. My guess, Your Brother-in-law is very happy with Your handi work, or Your not talking with each other.

Hi Harry

Nice job,,, that's why it's so nice to have a router mounted to the RAS to do lap joints and all the angles are built in to the RAS no guides needed or jigs.. and all the joints come out clean and flat..with the router doing the work.

Liked seeing the RAS/router adaptation. I got as far as acquiring an old RAS and putting it on wheels, but never got to the real "doing it" part. Maybe this will be the nudge i need. Thanx

Harry,

It does work out well when you have a project given to you
that enables you to give a practical demonstration.

I trust your BIL is happy.....

My dear, dear friend, your photographs are of a very high standard BUT, they do not show me HOW to make angled dados, I look forward to a demonstration so that I will be in a position to decide if I should fit a router to MY RAS.
