Cutting Jigs

The image below is of a Mitre Box. This jig allows the user to cut angles of 90 and 45 degrees in wood. This common jig may be bought from most tool shops. The 45 degree cuts are called mitre cuts. The box may be made from beech or cast iron. The box may be hooked onto the edge of the bench or clamped to the bench.

Cutting Jigs

This jig is called a bench hook. The two blocks of wood are joined together at right angles along long edges. One edge hooks on to the edge of the bench. The work to be cut is placed on top of the bench hook. This jig supports the wood whilst it is being cut.
