  • jig wood

    So usually when I make a jig for the shop I usually just grab what I have laying around. This time around I need to make a jig for using my router to flatten so walnut boards. I am planing on using plywood only problem I need to go buy some. So my question is when your making your jigs what kind of plywood do you use?

    For that particular jig, my choice would be MDF. If your objective is to use the jig as a planer than MDF offers the best chance, IMO, of producing a uniformly flat jig. But then again, that's just MHO.

      Agree with the Badger; MDF for 1/2" to 3/4" jigs and hardboard for 1/4".

        looks like that is what I will be going with. Yes my plan is to use this as a planer for all this walnut I have been letting dry for almost seven years now, all rough cut still.
