Jigs, Jigs, Jigs … I always seem to be making some sort of jig, but that's what woodworking is … making jigs, and in this video, our first dedicated to just jigs, we look at some of Colin's most used jigs in the workshop.

  1. That MDF looks like particle core to me lol good vid tho!

  2. Backyard Woodworking

    Jigs are like clamps you always need more of them. Good info Colin. Thanks

  3. Tell me about it, every time I am at the store, I always pick up a couple
    new clamps LOL

  4. The ShavingWood Workshop

    Great video Colin – very useful jigs

  5. +Backyard Woodworking Thanks Roland … yep, you are right !!

  6. +The ShavingWood Workshop Thanks Tommy

  7. +Grant Oneill I like that … wish we had more like you 🙂

  8. +J Rowe I notice a lot of people call K3 MDF – seems to be a common thing.
    I just call them both “particle board” to make it easy 🙂

  9. I was wondering how you would solve repeating a curved out on fence slats.
    In my situation I’m cutting fence slats that are 2-1/8″ wide and 48″ long.
    Repeating the length is no problem with a miter saw stop and cutting the
    width is on the table saw easily. The real time killer is the custom curve
    I have at the top. Looking at the slat on its face imagine the cut going
    from the top left corner and curving down to end on the right side of the
    slat down maybe 4 inches. Maybe the shape would be called a scallop I
    really don’t know.
    I’m currently using a bandsaw jig that I made from a video I found on
    YouTube. Strangely enough its the only video I could find for a bandsaw jig
    that performed the operation I need. It’s one board at a time.
    Once that jig is made it works quite well but there ends up being quite a
    bit of dexterity needed to make the cuts at the bandsaw because the the
    slat is 48″ long and the curve is such that it takes most of 90 degrees of
    swing or slide across the bandsaw table to complete. It’s a great option
    for small batches but I need to make nearly 1000 of these.
    I’m wondering if using a router jig would be a better option or some other
    Maybe a faster way to explain this issue is to ask how would the
    manufacturer of picket fences mass produce their slats with designs on them?
    I try to keep my comments short but that’s not so easy when you try to give
    all necessary details.

    Thanks for any help.

  10. +Cody Taber Hi Cody, thanks for the detail, some questions are short and
    harder to figure out. Hmmm … 1,000 eh. Nothing is jumping to mind on this
    for me. I think if I had to do them the way you are doing them, which
    sounds fine, I think I would try to do a bit of a batch cut but clamping a
    few together, start with 2 if that works, go to three and so on … but, it
    may not work depending on the curve and the wood you are using.
    I will give this a bit more thought, and if I come up with something …
    will get back but at the moment I am drawing blanks … sorry buddy

  11. Thanks for responding. I think I’ll try the stack method. I’m using a 1/4″
    6tpi 80″ blade now. Maybe going to my max of 1/2″ would give me an easier
    cut even if I have to go at each stack from different angles to make the
    radius I need.
    I don’t want to post a link directly here since its your channel and not
    the other guy but for what it’s worth the video is the second choice when
    you search for bandsaw jig on YouTube. From the US anyway.
    You’ve got a great channel and well done videos. I subscribed and will be
    working my way through them. Watched the colonial lantern one before work,
    it inspires me to other things.
    Thanks again

  12. Thanks Colin for the info on your jigs. I know I’ll be using them,
    especially the centering jig.

  13. Thoroughly enjoy watching your videos Mr. Knecht…always something new to
    learn and put to use…and always easy to understand and follow…thanks
    for sharing your skills with us…Happy New Year!

  14. Genius

  15. just love it, ty sir colin

  16. Love the sandpaper trick. And if you spray both the wood and paper, when
    the paper is worn out, it will come off and you can easily replace it.This
    is actually a trick that my wife first told me about

  17. Bonjour,
