Just saw that recently and thought it was a interesting and likely useable idea. Don't Jane a need to use it right now though.

Home made t track. Looks like a very workable idea Harry.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

You can get a router bit to cut the same shape in a solid piece of wood. Saves gluing, screwing and space.


In woodworking there is always more then one way to accomplish something.

I kinda used the same idea (but different) on building a circle cutting jig for my band saw.

Don in Murfreesboro,Tn.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

I posted this as a simple alternative to routing a tee slot, which is in agreement to the above line of yours!

Rout a dado and use T-track or put the T-track on the surface if possible. I did the latter for building a table for building custom fishing rods. Didn't need it recessed in the top.
