Sample text

When you need to draw a line parallel to the edge of a workpiece to mark for a row of screw holes or a piece of hardware, try this timesaving trick: Grasp a sharp pencil tightly with your finger, then press your fingertips against the edge of the workpiece. Carefully extend the pencil so that the point contacts the wood at the desired marking distance. Now draw the pencil along the workpiece, keeping your fingertips pressed tightly against the edge, as shown above. With a little practice, you’ll be surprised at how precise and straight a line you can mark this way.

SECTION 3 Finishing As with any other woodworking project, finishing is the last step in creating stable and durable jigs and fixtures. A quick coat of finish on raw wood, plywood, and even MDF and hardboard serves to protect the wood from moisture and to reduce the effects of humidity, which might otherwise split solid parts or warp flat panels. A sturdy finish can also improve a jig’s wear resistance and make it easier to clean. In contrast to finishing furniture or cabinets made from fine hardwoods, the task of finishing jigs and fixtures is considerably less demanding.

Take a piece of hardboard that’s long enough and wide enough for the task at hand, and use a miter box and handsaw or a powered miter saw to cut it to the desired angle (A). -deep groove centered on the wide face of the MDF strip, and glue the non-angled edge of the hardboard piece into the groove (B). Because the fence overhangs both faces of the hardboard, you can flip the marking gauge over to draw an angle that slopes in either direction. A dovetail-marking gauge is terrifically useful for laying out dovetail joints to be cut by hand (C).
