A few shop-made shaper jigs allow you to make custom moldings or creating tight-fitting joints easily and accurately. In Essential Shaper Jigs you’ll learn how to make and use several single and multipurpose jigs.
Essential Shaper Jigs
Many woodworkers wrongly assume the only thing a shaper can do is make sticks of molding. And while it does a good job of that particular job, there’s so much more the tool can accomplish with the application of a few well-made jigs.
In this class, you’ll make several multipurpose jigs and then put them to use making a sample cabinet door with both a wood panel and mullions for glass.
Some of the skills learned in the Essential Shaper Jigs class are:
- How to make and use a coping sled
- Build and use a tapering jig
- Make a versatile edging jig
- How jigs dramatically increase the safety of your shaper
Materials are included in the class fee. Each student goes home with several essential jigs that can easily adapt to their shaper.
Each student should supply his, or her, own:
- Safety glasses and hearing protection
- Combination or machinist square
- Bevel gauge
- Tape measure or folding rule.
If you do not have the tools on the list, don’t panic, there are plenty of tools for your use in class.
