If you followed the build blog, thanks. If not, here’s a couple snaps of the jig.

The base was a leftover piece of laminate flooring topped with a piece of roughly 1/4 ply. The side rail was whiteboard I think. The handles and hold-downs were of the same wood and the knobs were made from leftover particle board. Not too surprisingly, the knobs failed almost immediately. I’ve got some nuts gluing into them and hopefully that will fix the problem, until then I scavenged a couple of wing nuts to use today.
Someday when I have a better method I may re-make the hold-downs as the slots are not straight and they’re not real graceful, but the jig did its job and, for now, that is what counts for me.
The best part about this jig is I was able to give i a removable runner so I can use it with or without.

Keep the dust flying and be safe.
