Nothing special here. One of those jigs that I thought I would never need and hence I didn’t buy one even when they were on sale for around 15 or so and sure enough, I needed to cut few tapers to make a ramp and I decided what the heck…
Had few weird hinges around and few scraps of wood and an extra homemade handle and all I needed was friction lid support. I could’ve made that from wood also but was too lazy as is the case usually.

THX. The hinge came from a 30 year old folding bed.

Nicely built.

Nice jig. There’s nothing like the satisfaction of a home made jig or tool.
