What jig can you make that can do Dados, include stop dados, Rabbets, Fluting, Edging, and even Wainscoting? Yes, this jig can do all this and even more. It's easy to make and can be made a long or as short as you need from cut-off plywood or smaller pre-cut pieces from the lumber store and the only hardware needed is "T Bolts" and some wing nuts to go on them ...

For this build, I started off with the "stop and start"  blocks because, from them, the rest of the jig will come together naturally and will depend on the size and base of your hand router as to what size you want to make the jig. 

How to Build a Hand Sanding Block for Sanding Discs

Whenever I am sanding a project down, just before applying a finish, I often use my random orbital sander, but the final sanding job I do is to hand sand - with the grain - every part of the project, and finally, remove all the sanding dust. I ran out of 220 sheet sandpaper on my last project, which prompted me to use a disc pad as a hand sander. This gave me the idea to make a hand sander that uses the same discs as my random orbital sander.

Make Table Saw Fence Clamps / Saddle Clamps Table Saw Jig

I'm often making "slots" in wood, sometimes it is for jigs, but other times it is in the construction of a piece of furniture or some other woodworking accessory. I can often cut these on my router, but it requires a bit more work because I often need to set up a temporary fence either on my existing router table, of a temporary fence that consists of a straight board clamped to the wood I am cutting. For me, it's almost always faster to cut slots in wood using my table saw, and simply make 2 cuts the remove the inner core and now I have a perfectly straight slot.

I find that many times I need to make more than one slot, especially if I am making jigs so it's pretty common for me to need to move the table saw fence back and forth, depending on the cuts ...
