Top Tip coin cut­ter begets bet­ter blocks

WOOD - - SOUNDING BOARD / YOUR VOICE -

I mod­i­fied Bob LaDue’s coin-cut­ting jig in is­sue 254 (Shop Tips, July 2018), as shown right, to cut vary­ing lengths of square stock for the block puz­zles I build. Af­ter bor­ing the dowel hole in the slid­ing stock holder, I sim­ply squared it with my band­saw. In ad­di­tion, I made my holder 4" wide and cut two kerfs to make burr-free blocks of two dif­fer­ent lengths. And I can make even longer blocks by at­tach­ing a spacer to the fence side of the stock holder.
