    Or you can buy one if you are so inclined at Sears and many other places for about $20, but it is easy enough to build yourself.

      I came across this in fine wood working

      You will need to order the back issue but watch the video first to see if this is what you need....

        I just use a 6" wide piece of plywood about 48" long. I mark the start and stop points on the leg, line the marks up with the edge of the plywood and use double-stick tape to hold them down. Works great.

          One question, more about using tape on wood. Doesn't it leave behind residue that would then mar the finish?
          I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

            You can also use the jointer if you have one. You have to make several passes but no jig is required. .... Maryjo

              I haven't had any problems. Scraping and sanding usually remove any glue residue. Plus, I always give everything a good wiping with mineral spirits before finishing.
