Having worked some with my new Shaper Origin, I needed some jigs or workstations to enhance the abilities of the unit. The first two photos what SO users call a vertical workstation. With this jig, the SO can perform cuts on the ends of a work piece. In this case I am making some test tenons in oak.

The second two photos show the horizontal or adjustable height workstation. I will use this to perform cuts on the edges or faces of a work piece. The photos show making a test mortise. The nice think about the Origin is that the mortise can be adjusted by 0.001” to make perfect fitting M&T joints.

Like this?

It made me go Google, had never seen this before. I’m always the last to find out about [email protected]@l stuff. Thanks for sharing, something else to buy :-)

Yes that is the one. I found out about the SO on a tech website of all things.

This is fascinating, will be eager to see what people do with the shaper as it becomes more well known. Nice to see joinery done with it, typically the examples are some shape in plywood.

Do you have any side view pictures of this setup? I’m interested in making a horizontal support jig, but I’m not sure how I’d like to allow the support to translate up/down.

Have your say...
