It turns out that Matt Kenney is more than just a sharp wordsmith and gifted craftsman–he’s a “jack of all jigs.” Check out this short video. The proof is in the pudding!
And if you think this is a bad, be sure to check out our now-editor, and former managing editor Tom McKenna’s sizzle reel (groan).

Hey, why not have some fun once in a while? No curmudgeons required!
Watched it ...... didn't believe what I saw ......... watched it again! Wasn't the "greatest jig" but was a good jig!! Thanks for the morning chuckle!!
wasted 17 seconds, but less time than he usually wastes . . . most useful and competent thing he's posted
I may have missed it - but what I would like to see is the detail of the jig on the router table - what it does, benefits and how to make it
I did expect to see something that would help me in my woodwork
perhaps I have lost my sense of humor
I'm not sure if this jig is the "ultimate" but it certainly is a good laugh! Thanks!
got a laugh.... refreshing little laugh. Worth my 17 seconds.
I chose to click on the play button. Therefore, I chose to view the video. I also chose not to stop the video when I determined it was a humorous post. I also read the meta data below the post in advance and still chose to view the video.
I appreciate the FWW team putting themselves out there every now and then, reminding me that they are regular guys like me.
FWW, please stop wasting my time (even if it's only 17 seconds). If I'm looking for "humor," I'll go somewhere else where it's actually funny.
Mr . Kenney , now you are in debt with me.
Teach me how to make the master jig.

Very funny, and I needed a laugh today. As I was hitting "play" on the video, I was wondering how in the world he could describe a jig in 17 seconds. Now I see.
Wow. And I thought this blog was about the video. Now it is about the comments made by fellow members. I think the staff of Fine Woodworking can stand up for themselves. Maybe they could make a video about it?
OMG..... You people need to loosen up a bit (BLOGGERS)... I got a giggle out of and showed it to my Wife who also got a giggle..... Made me smile.... Nice way to start a Sunday morning....
Wow.... you people need to loosen up a bit.
Is there no humor left in the great USA
Good to see some people still have a sense of humor! IMO All the other experts need to quit taking themselves so seriously. 98% of the time the magazine and website deliver besides the fact the "ultimate jig" video is available for free to all.
In addition to the 17 sec, I also want my money back. I am offended by this amateurish use of my most valuable commodity, my time.
This used to be the resource I turned to to improve my woodworking knowledge base. If want funny clips, I'll waste my time on You Tube.
Stick to what made Gume Woodworking a great publication.
Time is my most precious commodity. I sure hate to waste it.
Matt, you've outdone yourself again........
Whats with the background? Is that left over from a 1970's PBS show on doing crafts at home?
There must have been thousands of people who thought of this "pun" and rejected it. They were right. It reminds me of advice I once got from an older woodworker: "just because something can be done, doesn't mean it should be done."
Interesting watching him take off his ear muffs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
after reading comments before seeing this "JIG" do I really want to see it???????
By "The proof is in the pudding..." you must be referring to the old saying that goes, "The proof of the eating is in the pudding."
Sorry Matt, but as every good woodworker knows, jigs are in 6/8 time, not 4/4 like your dance music.
Noooooo and I thought my name was bad
Fred Astaire is taking up woodworking in revenge.
That's how I danced at my wedding. I just didn't have a gut then.
Egad!! I want my seventeen seconds back...
I was cutting some dovetails recently. Here are the tools that I use when I cut them with hand tools.

In this video Michael finishes the first of the three boxes. Gluing-up, planing, sanding and finishing bring a new piece of art to the world.
In this video Michael starts work on the second box, a carved and painted Saddle lid box.
Michael begins carving the saddle lid box with his ripple pattern along the top. Then turns to his 5/30 gouge to texture the sides of the box. This isn't work…
