Like jigs? Like box joints? You’re gonna love this…
Have you ever met a woodworker whose greatest talents lie in making jigs and shop equipment? We did. On YouTube.
In the above video you’ll meet Matthias Wandel, a Canadian software engineer and woodworker who has invented some amazing woodworking jigs that incorporate everything from circuit boards to handmade gears. Knots member MVFlaim brought Matthias to our attention after he posted a link to the above video in the Knots discussion board.
The video shows off a sophisticated, screw-advance jig for cutting box joints on the tablesaw. There are free plans and a SketchUp download of the jig on Matthias’s Web site if you’re wacky enough to try and replicate it.
We thought we had seen everything in box-joint jigs last year when we published a video of a sophisticated router-table jig made by German woodworker Guido Henn. You can watch the members-only video in English or in German.
