Woodworking tips from Norm Abram

Posted By on December 9, 2007

As a hobbyist woodworker, I enjoy watching the New Yankee Workshop occasionally. I happened to catch an episode (a two part series) that offered tips for using a table saw. Although I appreciated all of Norm’s tips, there were a couple helpful ‘homemade’ jigs that I wanted to archive and build in the future. As someone who has used a table saw for quite a few year, I’ve have made several similar versions before, but never have taken the time to make them of ‘tool quality.’ These look a bit better than the ones I’ve made.

The first clip above is a fence extender for cutting rabbets and the second a panel cutting sled or slide.
