Jigs R Us!
Many of you have asked for a class on jigs so here goes! A woodworking “jig” is a shop-made item that is designed to help you do a particular operation; either more safely, more accurately or maybe just more easily. This class will combine lecture, demonstration and hands-on and will answer questions such as: when you should make a jig, how you would go about designing one, and how much work should you put into it. Is this something that will be used over and over or is it simply a one-time throwaway jig? Traditional or common jigs like a tapering jig or a mitering jig will be demonstrated, along with some other more specific and sometimes very simple jigs to help you with such everyday tasks as morticing a hinge into the edge of a part or flush trimming solid wood edging on a piece of plywood. We will also explore some of the commercially available jigs and see just what makes some of them worthwhile and others not. Sign up soon as this will be a popular class. Tuition $95.00 (materials are included).
