Here’s a multi purpose jig I use on my table saw to help support cutting small pieces and big panels safely. I also use it for flush trimming hardwood edge banding, box joints, and dovetails.

  1. William I very recently discovered your website and instructional videos.
    First of all my deeply felt condolences for your loss of your mother.
    Regarding the auxiliary fence it looks like appx. 10″ high, but I am not sure. Secondly what is the purpose of the horizontal piece of wood on the inside of the box?
    Suggest you think of an array of templates for push stick devices. I am a pretty amateurish when it comes to woodworking, but I am trying to avoid reinventing the wheel and do it as safely as possible.

    1. It’s about that high. Could be as high as you need, say if you do a lot of panels. The horizontal piece is so you can use it as a storage area. – Push sticks, clamps, stop blocks, etc.

  2. Wondered if you could post some construction details on the multi function table saw jig. I can see there’s rabbits on the ends,are there dados for the inner shelf?

    1. Table saw is running at 3400 rpm I did not slow it down, maybe it’s the editing which I lower the volume when the table saw turns on.

    2. Do you use glue and screws to fasten the hardwood runners. I used some cherry that has vertical grain. When will there be a video about the 45 degree jig that goes with the cross cut sled. Thanks for the great videos. Terry

  3. When I saw your video I noted that you had your multi-function table saw jig built not only so you can rotate it 180 and use both sides next to the blade, but also you can turn it over and then have two more sides next to the blade. I can envision using these “additional sides” for say, taller flush cuts or very small, shallow rabbets; however, I wondered, Mr. Ng, if you have purposes for the inverted use that have not occurred to me? Perhaps I am all wet, and there is some other reason for positioning the “bottom of the box” half way down the inside so that it looks the same irrespective of which side is “up”? Oh, and thank you for your wonderful and thoughtful videos. Though not a newbie and seventy-five years old, I have found them most informative, and since I am a PE (ME, EE, MBA), I have enjoyed your “engineering approach” to measurements with a good bit of glee! I had never seen any woodworker I know use a micrometer for much measuring. Apparently, you do so all the time, and as an old friend and fellow woodworker said to me when he watched the four cut method of setting the rip fence on the sled, he said, “Aim small, miss small!” As an old shooter as well, I got a kick out of his analogy, knowing it is true.
    In Memphis, TN. Thanks for all. Clay
