    Appreciate how thorough you are in your explanation. Lots of clear camera angles and good editing.  A very well produced video leaving nothing to be misunderstood.

    ok dumb newb question, when you cut the splines do you just cut through your jig everytime? I watched the other video first and assumed you just made the boards at a 45 degree (D parts) not go all the way down to the table so the box you were cutting stuck out lower than the jig…instead do you just make the cuts you need through the jig boards?

    Not sure if you would be interested in doing this, or if you have the time or the need, but if you do- Would you be interested in showing us how to build our own wood lathe using a 2 horse power motor and perhaps making lathe tools forged by hand? The latter is not so important as I am interested in putting my own together, but would like to do so without spending an exorbitant amount of money. 

    At the very least, I’d love to know what kind of lathe you are using 🙂

    Excellent video. I’m just curious why the jig needs to straddle the fence?

    no question is ever dumb.  when we were born we knew only how to cry and breath everything else had to be taught to us.

    You obviously take the time to ‘think out’ your presentation before actually making the video. It definitely makes the difference between an easily understood, very informative video, and an ‘average’ one. Nice job and very appreciated!

    Nicely done! I will be building one of these tomorrow. So do you basically cut up “parts D” depending upon where you cut your splines? I suppose even with many passes across your blade, you should have enough of “D” to hold everything together, correct? Do you ever “wear out” the jig from too many cuts? Thanks for the vid!

    I made this jig today. I discovered my Ryobi battery powered brad nailer doesn’t like below freezing temperatures. So I brought the fence indoors and finished assembling the jig on the kitchen counter. It operates smoothly and I will test it this weekend. Thanks for the great build video and inspiration.

    One of the best lessons I’ve seen

    Curiously, are you using the birch plywood for any particular reason? I happen to have some leftover mdf lying around that I really don’t have a use for that I was considering using.
