The first picture is my newest jig.  It is a jig to accurately set segments for open segment turning.  I found it deep in the video section of this forum.  The second picture has a story.  My wife wanted to take an afternoon nap so that ment no powertools.  So a straighten up of the shop was the next best thing.  Then I saw a couple of these jigs/fixtures.  They had been lying around gathering dust for the last 25 years.  One is a jig to hold jointer knives to be honed, never used.  Another is a jig to draw down the center of a board, never used, there is a jig with magnets to hold/set jointer knives in the jointer, you guessed it, never used, and another is a jig to hold a skew at the proper angle to sharpen on the grinder.  I have now robbed them of the useable parts and thrown away the rest.  I have a LOT of jigs.  A quick count and it topped 40.  Most used only once or twice and now gathering dust.  I have jigs to make boxjoints,dovetails,Windsor chairs, and veneer, and that is just one shelf!!!  Do you suffer the same as I..  are you a jigaholic?

All I can say is: " A shop without a jig is like a day without sunshine"

If you work with wood in any manner, you will be making jigs continuously. Jigs, slides, glides sleds, fixtures, hold-downs and stand-offs, you name it. Funny thing is, you need all that stuff just so you can make the next one.

i had to make a drilling jig for a doll crib round rails to fi many spindles, the pic is posted on this forum in a progress shot.

Note; the drilling jig ( above the pile of spindles) is just a plywood sled with V notch and then I added a clamp bar to hold the rounds. this and a story board made a snap to drill the matching spindle mounts on all the rounds.
I love simple jigs that work Smiley Smiley
