Default my two new jigs

having finished my first project (a small solid oak table) i thought i would make a couple of jigs to make the second table a little easier and quicker. well they have done the job, but did take some time to make and i will have to make some small adjustments.
For the mortise jig i used some free offcuts of 10mm plastic and some left over oak. For the tenon jig again used some free 10mm plastic and soft wood (which i need to change for hard wood.

cheers
mike

Mike.

I have been told that a man cannot have too many jigs....LOL

I am confused by the second photo - if you could show with timber in to be cut, I may be able to picture how the jig is used - but that is just me......

Hi James

I also looked at his jig many times but I think it's for putting the tenon on the end of the timber, he has the timber in place with some lines on it ,on both ends of the timber and a 30mm bushing in his router,it looks like he clamps the timber in place and runs the router down the plastic part to mills it off so it fits into the tenon slot..but I'm not 100% sure..

Hi mike James is right. The stock is in the jig and is guided in the plastic groves with a 30mm guide on the router plate. The stock is supported underneath with a thumb screw. The jig needs some work on it as it leaves two small rounded areas on the sides. I will upload the plans to show you when I get a moment
Cheers
Mike
