Picture Frame - WIP

Good day

My wife ordered another 3 picture frames (I made 2 a few days ago) and I decided to take a few pics so you can see my "Amatorski" working methods.

On this post (and the next one to come), you can see a few of my jigs "in action" and I hope that you'll find some ideas for your work.

One frame if made of Lauan and the other two, of Oak because...that's what I found in the garage attic...

Regards
niki

Niki,

It is nice to see your fantastic jigs being used for an actual project... I'm sure you've posted others that I have not seen before, its just most of the time I see your posts where it is just the jig being highlighted.
Nice work, the precision you get from your jigs is outstanding

Niki,
It's good to see that you are well and making sawdust.

I really like the straight line rip jig. It seems much safer than so many of the commercially available jigs.

Use the right tool for the job.

Thank you so much

You see...my hand skills are very close to ZERO so I have to employ the machines (and jigs) to make a precise work for me

This jig is actually my Saw Board (CS guide) just modified a little bit to serve as "double function" - for the circular saw/router and as a taper/straight edge sled for the table saw.

One day I'll post the "how-to" story
