Jigs

 

Here are plans for some of my favorite jigs.  I didn't design them.  I found them while surfing, but they have been invaluable to me.

 

 

To make the wheel for the wheelbarrow you need a nice, round  circle.  This jig will give you one.

This jig will cut out the hearts in a wheel, spacing them out evenly.

I wanted my wheel larger (5 3/8") than the 4 1/4" the plan is made to give, so I needed my hearts "moved" further out from the center of the wheel to give it a more balanced appearance.  I adjusted the jig to suit my needs by moving "A" to the left 1/4" to 3/16".  I made mine out of scrap OSB in 15 minutes or so, so it wouldn't be difficult or costly to make several to cover any wheel size you need.

This is my finished wheel, sanded on the circle jig and with the hearts cut out using the heart jig.

 

 

This is a taper jig for legs.  It will also put a  straight edge on  a bowed board.  The second picture shows how the jig put a nice taper on one of the planer cart legs.

This is a Lazy Susan/turntable made from scrap ply and pine.  I sit projects on it that I am staining or applying poly to.   It makes it easy to move the item around and reach all sides of it.  

 

 

 

Here's a copy of the directions for assembly that came with mine.  You need to "copy" it and "paste" in your photo program.  Then enlarge it to view or print.
