Looks good, Rick – easy and

Yeah, I’m planning to make a simplified version of the jigs shown above (the YouTube ones). Yours is pretty much in line with what I was thinking, only I won’t use Al, I’ll just use a piece of scrap maple.

(My lazy approach to jigs is to make them functional rather than taking the time to be elegant. If you saw my crosscut sled you’d see what I mean – a piece of plywood on top of two hardwood rails, with vertical boards attached to the front and rear. No safety double wood where the blade goes, no fancy handles, no permanent clamping hardware… and I fully intend to be just as crude here.)
