I found this project and really thought it would be a very useful jig. Please see all the functions of the jig made by Bricofleur as I will not be going over that part of the jig. I wanted to modify the jig based on two things: 1) ease of use, & 2) storage. I made the first set of holes for the dowels 6” apart for thin go-through routing pieces and then 1-foot apart all the way to 4 feet. One thing I hate being bogged down with is setting up a jig with clamps. I was taught the wonderful use of dowels to secure jigs without clamps by ohwoodeye in the comment section of my Mortise & Tenon Bench Top Bench project and proceeded to use that method, making this a very simple, highly functional jig that is easy to store. I added a 3rd piece (last photo) for additional support if needed. Thank you Bricofleur & ohwoodeye for sharing, allowing me to come up with this project.

Nice job, Nick. Yours definitely takes less space and is easy to set up. Luckily you have bench dog holes on both sides of your bench. Thanks for spreading and improving the idea !

I’ve had a chance to “break these in” over the last few weeks and I can not tell you how much I love them. They are a breeze to set up where they are needed for cutting, clamping, routing, and glue up. I highly recommend making a set of these and guarantee you will be glad you did. Thanks again Bricofleur for allowing me to borrow your idea. A REAL time saver!
