I bought a door set last winter and have been making frame and panel doors ever since. I am usually averse to making elaborate jigs. In this case I decided it was worth it. The plans are from Woodsmith. So far I’ve only tested on scraps but it seems to work well. I used Baltic birch plywood with plastic laminate on both sides. The fence is white oak reinforced with aluminum. There is sacrificial piece MDF that acts as a backer and can be slid out and the end chopped off when it gets torn up. The hold down clamp is square steel tubing with an oak filler and a threaded insert.

Looks great Bondo!

I like the way you did the backer, easy to freshen up and critical to a clean cut.

There are 3 brass threaded inserts. Two are for the knobs that tighten the backer in place and one is in the hold down arm.

Great looking jig Mr. Bond... I really appreciate seeing a well engineered jig… Are those aluminium knobs or silver plastic? Either way, they set it off.

Love your ”wood inlaid” aluminium tubing… That’s one concept I’ll file away in my memory banks that alcohol cannot affect.

Substantial looking sled Bondo. I saw that article, and thought it looked to be the top $$$$$ jig. Enjoy it.
