November Meeting - Simplifying Woodworking Tasks With Jigs and Fixtures

Presented by Terry Brown

Tuesday, November 17, 7:00 PM

The presentation will focus on ways to maximize both your efficiency and accuracy when using power tools.

Some of the areas to be covered will include:

  • How to use your table saw more accurately without using all of the digital things that  have permeated woodworking. 
  • How to make two marks on your saw that save time and allow accurate setting of the fence.
  • Use of story sticks 
  • Simplifying the setup and cutting of coves on the table saw
  • Quick setup of support surfaces (in and out feed) for thicknessers
  • A simple fence and tenon jig
  • A very important bit of advice on why to make jigs with built-in short cuts that allow for quick and accurate adjustment
