A New Jig – A Simple Tenoning Jig

Today it is a tenon jig for my table saw.  I’m making ‘turnstiles’ for my Church’s upcoming VBS. The theme is ‘Colossal Coaster World’ so we need to make our church look like an amusement park.  The turnstiles will be at the main entrance so the kids will pass through the gate into the park.  It should be fun.

In order to make them I needed to cut a 15degree angle into the end of a 2×6. So a simple tenoning jig was needed.  I’m now trying to make jigs as I need them for a task. It seems better to do it that way.

A special thanks to the folks at Wood Choppin Time for the free plans I used to make the jig.  They also posted a video on how to use it.  I can see how it could also be used for half-lap joints which I want to give a try.

Here’s the video.
