A Place for Jigs at LumberJocks

11-13-2007 10:11 AM by Blake | 51 comments »

It seems to me that we need a place for Jigs at LJ’s. This is how I imagine it: It would be identical to the “Projects” section but it would be it’s own separate area. So each persons account would have “My Home,” “Projects,” “Jigs,” “Blog,” Buddies,” etc. On the Home Page there would be a little “Jigs” section right under the “Projects” section and it would show the latest three Jigs p...

Reviews - Books #2: Router Books

10-23-2007 03:01 PM by Dekker | 1 comment »

When I first started wanting to buy a router, I went out and bought some books on routers to give me an idea of what I could do with them, what to look for in a router, and also some jigs that would let me use them effectively. Well, at the time, The New Router Handbook (Patrick Spielman, 1993, Sterling, ISBN 978-0806905181) was the book of choice that was recommended reading. I picked up a copy and was absorbed by the world of routers, what they could do, what makes a good router tabl...

Celtic Knot Pens #1: One way to do it

09-06-2007 04:24 PM by Gary | 16 comments »

This was requested from multiple sites, so I did one for everybody. Here’s some photos of my process;I only had enough time to do a two-ring knot, but it’sall the same to make a four-ring knot accurately if you follow these steps. This shows the miter sled, the length of contrasting wood for the slices, and the bloodwood blank I’m going to use. I’ve already squared the blank so that all four sides are the same size.I randomly pick a side and mark it 1.Side 2 i...

Jigs #2: Multi Position Jigs

07-24-2007 04:20 AM by Lee A. Jesberger | 17 comments »

Making better use of you time includes making jigs that can be used in different ways, or positions. The first series of photos show the jig used to cut the dovetail slot into the post, to receive the legs. This had a knob to tighten to prevent the post from spinning. The second set of photos were the jig for carving the post. This too, proved to be very helpful. It has boards on the back side that fit snugly over my bench top, while held tight in the vise. On the e...

Jigs #1: Templates and Jigs

07-23-2007 12:36 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 16 comments »

Templates and Jigs Whenever we do a project that has the potential to be built again, or if the design is somewhat difficult, we’ll spend the time to build a jig. This is a process that pays back big dividends, and has been practiced for hundreds of years. In the first instance, it makes sense to speed up the process of duplicating it. This prevents you from having to record all the dimensions and engineering that went into the piece. A very big time saver. In the second ...

Vacuum series #1: Plexiglass Jigs

07-12-2007 09:06 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 19 comments »

I was thinking whether or not to make this a continuation of the veneering bog, however many items here have more to do with vacuum systems, than veneering. Hence a new Blog! Photo one is a Demilune Hall Table top jig. Photo two is a 30 inch long tee square which we use for biscuiting and routing duties. We make marks on the blue tape, were the biscuits go. When were done we replace the tape. Photo three is an 8” square that we use to biscuit cabinet sides on. P...

WWND- What would Niki do? #1: Jigs and Fixtures. Creating something that makes work safer, easier, repeatable and on a budget.

07-05-2007 09:31 AM by Douglas Bordner | 8 comments »

I, like many here have been amazed at the posts that LJ member Niki has provided in the realm of jigs, fixtures and set-up tools. I decided to pay him a little homage in the title of this collection of shop fixtures and jigs. I finally got tired of knocking over my cyanoacrylic glues, only to later find some tool or other in a big amalgam.I have a bunch of left over hiker mattress pad scraps from making ring inserts for my jewelry boxes. The light bulb came on, and here is what I came up w...

The Saga Continues #6: The Wonderful World of Jigs - according to Fred

04-27-2007 05:22 AM by fred | 18 comments »

I love making jigs. It is a great sense of confidence and actually takes longer to make them then it does to use them. I like to build things in the shop and making jigs is fun. I want to share some of them with you. Yes, I know there is a forum for jigs, but it has been 36 days since anyone posted in it. My first jig was a finger joint jig. On my recent making of a jewelry box I made a hinge mortising jig. When I was making cabinet for the dining room and the entertainme...
