Taunton's Complete Illustrated Guide to Jigs & Fixtures
by Sandor Nagyszalanczy
Paperback

Finding an effective jig or fixture for a woodworking operation can be as elusive and time-consuming as designing a great piece of furniture, a sailboat, or a ukulele. It takes solid woodworking knowledge and some problem-solving skills, with a good dose of inspiration thrown in. Even a moderately complex setup can pose numerous choices:


•What tool or machine is best for the operation?
•Should the jig move the wood over the machine or guide the machine past the wood?
•How does the workpiece need to be referenced and clamped?
•Should the jig be adjustable?

Most of the woodworkers I’ve met delight in solving challenging jigging problems. But tackling these problems requires a basic understanding of jig function and design. This book will teach you how to make these time saving devices and help improve everything you build in your shop.
