Since i just started learning to wood work, I have found that i could make nothing but jigs for the next year. and another making add on to the power tools i have, such as a extension fence for mither saw, same thing for drill press and so on.

I make the jigs as I need them as some others here do, like Brian.   Steve, don't get caught up in things that take the fun of the work away or you'll find yourself avoiding the shop.  I have built lots of equipment, jigs and cabinets that make my work easier and more efficient, but I allways did it either when I got a new (or different) tool and had to set it up or if I saw the need for repetitive work, and like Kenny...all the shop cabinets are the same height and on rollers.  I try also to keep all similar tools in the same area or cabinet with the primary unit, like, for example, if you have a router table, put in onto a roller cabinet with storage below and keep all your routers and bits there...here's some examples from my kinda primitive but pretty efficient shop, with smaller tools
Steve,
Making jigs can be fun and rewarding.
Make any and all, that you like or you think you'll need.
Hang 'em up in your shop and admire them.
You can sit back, admire them, and say to yourself, '' I made those!''.
And, when your friends see them displayed, they might say, ''where'd you get them?, I didn't know you new how to do that''.
You'll be proud of your accomplishments.
When you get into making projects, you'll find many of them very handy and useful.

Check out various woodworking websites, some offer lots of jigs & fixtures, that are very useful.

As a newbee, in woodworking, make the simple jigs & fixtures first, then expand as you gain knowledge and experience.

Good luck with your woodworking tasks.

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
