Workshop Jigs & Fixtures
Jigs and Fixtures are amazing tools in the workshop. They help us make easy work out of difficult tasks, create efficiencies by making processes repeatable, and they make jobs that could otherwise be terribly dangerous safe.
This class will focus on how to make common jigs and fixtures. Our work will begin with a cross-cutting sled for the table saw, one of the most common and useful tools in a woodshop.
Students will also make several jigs that they can take home to help in their own workshop. These include: a bench hook, a bench bull, and the student's choice of: a straight edge guide for a circular saw; a mortising jig for a router; and a circle cutting jig (or trammel) for a router or jigsaw. For this last project, students will need to bring their tool from home to customize the jig.
This class has a materials cost. That cost will vary by the project you choose. At this time, we are taking a deposit of $60 for your materials fee. We will finalize the materials fee once we know how many of each project is being made.
