Next you will learn how to make a template cutting jig, which will cut multiple sided items very accurately. In a manner similar to how a key is cut, your template cutting jig will follow a pattern while cutting, without damaging the pattern itself. For the final portion of the class, you will learn how to build a circle cutting jig on your table saw. Think lazy susans, wheels for toys, and round tabletops and you will see how invaluable this jig will be! After you leave the class you will have the knowledge to build these jigs in your shop and how to use them correctly or you may decide to take our Table Saw Sled Making Class!
