Default Jig for sawing thin strips

This simple jig will be perfect for making edging strips and splines.

To be sure I understand correctly (You know how I am) you would need to make one for each thickness I wanted. I think I might like this idea. Harry always is coming up with good ideas.

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

Seems to me you might need several of these in different dimensions to fit different size stock. Sure would be an easy fix for cutting strips. You could determine the depth of the notch by placing your stock between the fence and blade to set the fence to cut a precise jig. A tilt introduced by the thickness of the jig would affect the width of the thin strip. With that in mind what a nice solution.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

This is great, far better than the jig I bought. I'll try this out next week. Thanks Harry.

Thanks, Harry. This looks safer and more accurate than some I've seen. As long as you have a fence that can be easily and accurately adjusted in small increments, it should work great.

It seems I never finish what I

Surely Don all you do for new thickness wood is move the fence, at least that's how I interpret it.
