Woodworking Jigs & Fixtures
Jigs, Jigs & More Jigs...
Shop jigs and fixtures provide solutions for a variety of challenges you might encounter while woodworking. The challenge might be safely executing a difficult cut. Perhaps the challenge is accurately repeating a specific task multiple times. Maybe the challenge is making a complex cut extremely easy. Simply stated, the promise of all shop jigs and fixtures is to deliver safety, ease of execution, as well as accurate and repeatable results. When producing thin stock on a table saw the GRR-Ripper allows you to create this material safely by keeping your fingers and hands away from the blade. Feather boards keep stock tight to the fence to reduce kickback, and the new magnetized versions like the MagJig from MAGSWITCH make placement quick and easy.
There's nothing more frustrating that attempting to align the holes for dowel pins, the Self Centering Doweling jig provides accurate alignment, every time. When boring holes for shelf pins, alignment and placement is critical, but easily obtained with the WoodRiver Shelf pin jig.
