Tenoning Jig

I made this tenoning jig as what I thought could be a solution to the 22.5-degree angle required for a flag display case. I have a right-tilt arbor on my tablesaw which necessitates using the jig in reverse—moving the fence to the left of the blade.

Maybe it would work for someone else, but it didn’t work for me for that purpose. I still could not get a correct angle close enough to be worth the bother. I ultimately rough cut the angle on the bandsaw and then sanded it to perfection with this sanding protractor jig that I made.

I hope that I’ll eventually get some use out of it for cutting tenons! Meanwhile, it works really well as a fence for taller pieces.

Very nice jigs,I particularly like the protractor on the sander.

The jig looks good. I’m having trouble seeing why it doesn’t work.

But I was just thinking… I know.. I know… very dangerous… 😂 But for that kind of bevel shown in the first picture, maybe its better to make a jig for your chop saw. Just a thought…

Brian,

I’ll probably never use this jig for bevels since the bandsaw and my protractor jig worked out well for that, but another woodworker gave me some advice on clamping that could make the tenoning jig more accurate for steep angles.

Jim,

I need to laminate the protractor on the jig and figure out a better way of attaching it. (Right now it’s just taped on.)
