Default Making jigs

There's been several threads as of late regarding different jigs. Norm, of The New Yankee Workshop, has 2 videos, one this week, and one next, showing how HE has made several of his jigs. Certainly not the ONLY way to make them, but they are very good and functional. Check them out here:New Yankee Workshop

The table saw sled is priceless and I use mine for most cutting on my table saw. The one I built is similar to the original Norm replaced. Anyone who has a table saw with a quirky fence will appreciate how easy it is to make square cuts this way.

One other thing worth mentioning is how Norm clamps his featherboards in place so he is not restricted by placement of T tracks or miter slots. This is the quickest, easiest way to attach them to your saw or router table.

No, these are free to watch. They put a different one up each week. This is jigs part 1 btw, part 2 will be up next week.

Now, you CAN purchase the video, and/or a measured drawing of all his projects if you so choose, but looking is still free.

I agree Brian. I have the DVD, and the show on my PC as I copied it from my set top recorder some years ago.

It is great to be able to view these repeats for free each week.
