Small Projects #46: Prism Stand

05-07-2021 03:46 AM by Madmark2 | 8 comments »

I got the Fast-Joint Mini jig (review HERE ) in and working the other day and thought what better first project than a storage box for all of the jigs bits and bobs? The complete, assembled jig consists of the following: Lots of oddly shaped bits. By stacking I was able to reduce the interior space required down to 8-1/4” L x 4-5/8” W x 4-1/8” H. With the sides 1/2” thick and the ends 3/4” the outside dimensions for the sides is 9-3/4” and 5-5/8”...
