Thread: My first jig

    My first jig

    Made my first jig today. It is a circular saw ripping guide. I am trying to make a twin bed from the plans that I got from Matthias Wandel's website. I decided to buy five 2 x 10's x 8 and rip the boards that I needed. Didn't have any luck getting a straight edge at all so I did a search on circular saw jigs and made this one. This is also my first glue up.

    Way to go, Greg. If you're like most of us, I'm betting that'll be the first of many jigs you end up making over time.

    Good show. Those little buggers that make tasks safer, faster and more accurate seem to multiply of their own accord.
