Taunton's Complete Illustrated Guide to Jigs & FixturesComplete Illustrated Guide to Jigs & Fixtures

This book covers jigs and fixtures, a subject of perennial interest to woodworkers. Jigs are like clamps. As the saying goes, "You can never have enough of them." Jigs, simply put, are devices, sometimes shop-made but now often available commercially to enable woodworkers to do something more than once. For example, some jigs are fences that ensure straight cuts or templates capable of guiding tools to create a certain shape time after time. Woodworkers love jigs and fixtures for the same reason they are drawn to woodworking-designing them is about figuring out how to do something.
