TM reader and photo pool member Vince posted these great photos of a finger joint jig he built himself from plans he found for free online. It’s made of MDF, maple, and pine, and looks like it’ll do a great job.
My father had a store-bought model that was metal. It was much smaller, but it was ex-pen-sive. As in mugging expensive.
Has anyone else made a custom tool lately, either because you just couldn’t find exactly what you wanted or because you just didn’t have the cash to buy it? Let us know in comments, or better yet, join our Flickr photo pool and post pictures. We’ll be watching!
