Default Jig Saw Cutting Station

I saw this video posted on another website. Pretty dang spiffy, if you ask me.

I am willing to bet he didn't use Sketchup in his design.

Or a CNC!

Now I am thinking...why didn't I think of that? After all, I have made an exact width dado cutting sled and the router planing sled, both similar in concept. SMH


That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Give that guy a sheet plywood and he builds all his own tools.

That is so cool, as are all of his shop made tools, that it deserves an award.

I have to say, that's nothing like I was expecting to see when I clicked the link. I think this is something that would be very useful to have available in the shop. And in looking at some of his other videos, I'm very impressed with his creations. thanks for posting.

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .

Thanks Mike. What a great video. His router table is very close to my first table and I am not kidding. Every one that is just getting started in wood working and do not have a lot of money needs to see this guys video. Every new wood worker needs to understand that you don't need all the fancy tools we have.
