One project leads to another and another and another…..It’s madness I tell ya! Madness!!! All just to make one index key for my box joint jig. A jig for a Jig for a Jig. Madness….I say. Madness!!!

Zero clearance insert for 7 1/4 circular saw blade made from 1/4 hardboard.
Zero clearance for 1/4 dado made from 1/2 oak plywood
miter guage small parts sled for tablesaw and bandsaw.
2nd photo of extension insert. Had to make an insert for the extension of my TS because material would slip under the fence. Presently the router is mounted to the underside of the insert.
it’s been an eventful week. “sigh”

JIGS jigs and more Jigs standby as they multiply like rabbits and are a great necessity in the shop.

I’m the same way BD. My bench always has three or four in progress projects, each one morphing out of the previous one. It’s amazing how much you can get done that way
