I needed to make a bunch of pyramid post caps for my deck and porch and couldn’t figure out how to do it safely. A buddy of mine then pointed me to tenoning jigs. Not wanting to drop a bunch of $$ I decided to make my own. I found some plans on the web, can’t remember where now, and modified them a bit by adding some T-track I had around. Its all made of 3/4 MDF except the stop which is a water stained scrap of oak from building a staircase years ago. It made quick work of cutting the 10.5 degree pyramid cuts.

Lookin good and the price is right. My style of jig. Are you sure it cuts straight as I noticed that beer bottle there on your saw you know. I was gonna suggest you make a coaster for it so as to not leave rings on the saw. But then it looks like a granite top so you are good and I can relax and not worry about rust.

Nice looking jig.

FYI the plans are available on the Woodsmith TV show website. I also made one. Works great. I wish I had made mine with a t-track!

Yup. That’s the site. Next up is their drill press table, improved of course.

Have your say...
