Not every jig needs to be complicated, and this jig is one of the simplest, yet most effective jigs you can make for cutting dados. It's ideal for anyone who wants to make a shelving unit and want to make sure the shelves are securly connected to the sides by having them inset into dado. The jig is quick and easy to set up, and it's variable, meaning you can use it for any depth of shelf you want and you don't even need to measure them, you can use the actual shelf that you have to set the width of the dado, then simple clamp the jig to your end boards and start cutting ... it's that easy.
