Straddle the Fence- Its not Just for Politicians!

VanDyke L fenceJoin Bob Van Dyke for a weekend of building one of the most valuable tablesaw add on jigs you can imagine! How many times have you clamped a sacrificial scrap of plywood to the fence to cut a rabbet and then had to move the clamps because they were in the way of the cut? And- have you ever heard of pattern cutting on the tablesaw? The fixture we will make is an ingenious and easily used base to fit over the existing tablesaw fence and allows you to quickly bolt on any number of  specialty fences- certainly the most valuable being an easily adjusted and versatile “L” fence. We will make the base, the “L” fence and a number of other fences (miter fold, Tenoning jig, rabbets, etc.) Check the two articles in Fine Woodworking written by Bob for the full explanation- or- just sign up and plan on going home at the end of the weekend with the most useful tablesaw jig you have ever used! Sign up today. Tuition $275.00 plus materials
