Default My First Horizontal Table

Another successful weekend in the cellar.
For the grand total of 10 euro I have bulit this.


Rear View


Constructed out of MDF and ply offcuts from the scrap bins in the local DIY centre.

The first rough Tenon produced


If there's an easier way to produce Tenons I'd like to know more.

HI Titus

Nice job

I made one like yours a long time ago ,it has many down falls but it will do the job if you don't get in a rush.. I will suggest you make/buy a sled for yours if you are going to use it for Tenon work...

I think I have a snapshot of the old jig/sled I used on it, see below.
I use the front of the table top for the indexing and to keep the jig true to bit..

Bob,
Thanks for the photos.
A sled was the next thing in mind when I knocked this together.
I can't quite see how yours works.
Does the downward pressure from the spring clamp not "lock" the work piece to the table top or am I seeing it wrong?

Hi Titus:

There's a part of the sled that you are not seeing. The clamp pushes the work-piece onto another part of the sled. If you look closely at the right edge of the work-piece near the clamp, you should see that the work-piece is resting on a panel that is part of the sled.

Aaah, now it's a bit clearer. Thanks Cassandra.

Obviously the lower (hidden) plate is of thin material (6mm ply) and stops short of the cutter.

This means having to put an extra 6 mm on the cut height - am I seeing it correctly?

Hi Titus

I'm not sure if I still have the jig but I will check in the shop today and if I see it I will take a snapsot of it on the bottom side view..

Hi Titus

Here's some snapshots of the back side less the cam hold down device, I must have used it on some other jig

But you don't need it you can use the slide block on the jig to do the same thing, the big block on the end is for indexing the jig also for putting in the slots, just push the stock into the bit and move it sideways until it stops on the index block, clamp some boards on the table for the start point and stop points for the slots..

as you can I just use some scrap stock to make the jig..

Bob,
Thanks for the pics.
They clear up a couple of points.

I'll knock one up at the weekend.
