looks like a real handy jig…I don’t have a jointer so I think I’m going to try to make one of these….

Great looking jig. I like the idea that it will joint your tapers. Great job on this. Any measurements you can share?

OK I was going to ask why not have this set up for you table saw but I see that you don’t have one. You are getting a lot of work done and with NO table saw! That impressive. I couldn’t even dress myself in the morning with out a table saw.

It is a great looking jig, and if you had a table saw you could use it to cut non-parrallel edges (long tapers, for example).

Great jig I really admire a woodworker that can still get there project built with very limited equipment. people forget that all of the famous master woodworkers of the 18th and 19th century had no power tools at all.

I believe it’s a quarter sheet of mdf(24”x48”). The fence is a 4/4 – 6”x48” piece of jointed pine. There are a couple sets of holes drilled for the knobs/clamps depending on the size of workpiece your routing. I also made markings across the front every 1/8” to 12”’s on the top of the mdf. I usually just use a combo square to set the fence though. I thought about making a 8’ version before i bought the jointer. Woodworking doesn’t require a lot of power tools, but they sure do make things faster.

Thanks for the measurements. I can see where this can come in very handy. Thanks for the post.
