In part 4, we take a look at a deluxe crosscut station, complete with a lumber rack storage area on the backside. In addition this unit features a tilt-out bin, sliding drawers, adjustable shelving, and customizable pigeon compartments. Designed by Craig Bentzley and built by Joe Hurst-Wajszczuk, this article is written by Paul Anthony and is featured in Woodcraft’s October/November Magazine, Issue #43.
If you haven’t heard of woodworker Jory Brigham, don’t worry – you will. The California free-spirited family man designs and handcrafts unique furniture using mostly domestic hardwoods and time-honored techniques in his Paso Robles studio, overlooking the vineyards in wine country. His look is rugged, earthy and retro – much like the furniture he creates.
Another winner from Kreg Tool
Beautifully machined, solidly built, timesaver for accurate repeated cuts. Requires a 3/4" thick fence which many miter saws do not have. I use a Rigid 12" compound sliding miter saw which has a very good metal fence but its not 3/4" thick. You must build a table and fence combination in order to use this item on the typical miter saw.
Great Tool Once You're Set Up For It
This jig is typical of Kreg Tool products - beautifully machined, high quality materials, robust design, good instructions (photos instead of drawings would make the instructions excellent). It assures repeatable cuts and higher throughput when making many repetitive cuts. However, it requires a 3/4" thick fence for mounting. I use a Rigid 12" sliding compound miter which has a metal fence that is not 3/4". I had to design and build a platform and fence before I could use this jig. My saw is mounted on a mobile stand so the design was a little tricky but the completed system is fantastic!
