Another awesome jig Izzy. I have some curly maple that need to be slabbed up. This jig is a good match for those pieces.

I love it. Gives me an excuse to grab my bowsaw and head out to the woods behind the house.

I can’t shake the notion that you could do this without having to sacrifice so much of the jig by screwing directly in to it.

Love the video’s that you do, and are a huge help with the jigs for ALOT of folks. I also use a few different jigs, to mill out alot of my own lumber, and one is very similar to this one. Great job as always. I look forward to seeing what you come up with next.
