Circular saw jig
90° and 45° cuts.

Simple but useful jig for my new cordless circular saw.
I build it for the purpose of fast and easy 90° cuts for some click floors, I put down in my new allotment house – but also for all kind of 90° and 45° cuts around the house and garden.

These pictures are from the blog: https://www.lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/130245
Where you can read much more and see a few pictures from my new allotment house.


Pictures:
1. Saw jig with a click floor board in it.
2. Build picture from the blog.
3. In use in the allotment.
4. 45° cut for trimming.
5. Cutting Oak window trim.
6. Yes I am guilty of putting fake wood in the house (so help me wood God). :-D

(I found several versions of this jig on Youtube and basically made the max2cutversion – thank you. Links at end of blog).

Hope it can be to some inspiration, even a jig perhaps?

Best thoughts,

MaFe

I enjoy Glenn’s (DIY Creators) builds. He has a couple iterations of that jig. You picked a good one for all the monotonous cutting of flooring. I like your workshop house, it seems very relaxing.

Nice jig/guide it will make your small portable saw all the more accurate, and quick to use. Liked the Blog on the new place. Just in the journey through that the place went from a disaster zone to looking very clean, starting to look home like, nice job.

Hi,
Home again after closing the house up for the winter last week.
Madts, tak kære Madts, håber der er smil i dit liv og du kommer på plads.
woodshaver, laughs, yes and into the jig. Thanks.
Brit, Come and visit. ;-) I’ll try to make a little blog about the pace and wood projects.
Ivan, I have used it a lot, for all kinds of work now and love it, so I can highly recommend making one. Smiles-
therealSteveN, big smile thanks, yes I also feel the place starts to look like a home and a place where you want to stay and not just visit. Still a long way before I’m done, but I’ll enjoy the path. The jig is in many ways, like bringing a miter saw and handles a lot of jobs, with great precision fast.
Jim, yes without electricity, the saw and jig is a perfect couple. I bought extra batteries and a double charger, so I can power up the generater and charge three batteries at the same time, so I don’t burn too much gasoline for nothing.
swirt, I never heard of this jig before, looked for a simple way to cut the floor 90° and was lucky to find one, then learned that there were lots of them, now I don’t understand I did not meet them before and even less, that I did not build one before. :-D So grateful here. Is there are a special different version I should see?
The new workshop there has become a really fine place to hang out, after I put windows, it makes me smile each time I open the door. Even I share it with mice and just had to get rid of a pair of rats also, that had moved in for the winter. So I will work a little on that part of the house, so I can get it for my self (it was just a shed). Laugh.
pottz, thank you, yes I also saw it like that (cross cut sled).
Lew, thank you back and a smile.
Thank you for the comments, happy to share not only a project, but also a little of my life.
Best of my thoughts,
Mads
