    Made that one a few years ago. Still in use, simple and efficient

    My son had a table saw, so he was able to rip the 45° angles in a 2 x 4 for me. Your idea is a really good one!!!

    I ended up ripping a 2x4 down the middle, slicing a 45° piece out of each side and gluing the two halves back together. Seems to work well. Not as precise as I'd like but this isn't NASA

    That probably would work, but if you have a 'hometown' lumber yard in your town, you can maybe schmooze them to make your cut for you. I had a guy make me a jig out of a piece of 2X4, and all it cost me was giving him a pint of Sandhill Plum jelly...that is because I have a table saw that is still in the box!

    BTW, the jig works great!

    Jig to Rip Blocks into Triangle for Ornaments

    Waiting on my bandsaw to go on sale at the end of the month during the annual 'extravaganza'.

    I have seen jigs in articles and books that assist in ripping blocks into triangles for ornaments.
    They mention using a table saw to cut the 45 degree slot down the middle. I don't have a table saw and don't want to have to go back to the finance committee so I was thinking of an alternative method using the bandsaw.
    • Rip 2x4 down the middle
    • Make 45 degree cut down each piece. |\ /|
    • Attach both sides together making one piece with trench down the middle. |\/|
Working...
