tips from woodsmith magazine

I don't normally rate these tips that turn up every month or so in my inbox.
Many seem to be of the genre "Hammer used to insert nail in timber" :lol:

But this one seemed a cut above the average - to me anyway.

Naughty naughty Mark - another typo? :)

Nice jig but they all take up space especially as they are funny shapes and probably will only be used once in awhile?

True Rod, but they are so simple and made from scrap, they could easily be discarded after a run of projects and re-made should the need occur. I tend to keep a few home made jigs until I need the specialist fixings, Bristol levers, toggle clamps etc for a new jig and then scrap them - seems to keep the total jiggery under control.

Exactly, and with half the chance of stuffing it up completely as you have with a router. Besides, routers leave tool marks, and so you'd need to clean it up afterwards anyway........with a plane.

I like it, even if it can be improved with a sharp plane or paper.

Practice makes perfect - but a good tip from one who knows saves timber, time and tools

I'm just surprised anyone was willing to admit that they got it - oooops, I guess by saying that I have revealed I got the reference as well! :lol:
