There are three common shop fixtures that every woodworker should have: a router table, crosscut box, and a cope and style fixture. In this one week class students will make all three of these fixtures, which are the same one’s used at MASW. And there’s more. There will be at least three surprise fixtures or hand tools that Doug has designed for each person to make and take as well. The router table was featured in Fine Woodworking magazine and will include a pivotal fence system that is perfectly square. (Students will need to bring their own router insert.) The crosscut fixture will be made large enough to crosscut 20” wide boards and will be made to fit your table saw and will feature a clear plastic safety shield. The cope and style fixture will be made to mount on either the router table or the shaper and can cut both rails and styles on any size door. Students who make furniture or cabinets on a regular basis have a few homemade fixtures hanging around. We all know how important they are. Anyone new to the field of woodworking or anyone who just can’t seem to find the time to make their own special fixtures won’t want to miss this class, which is led by the master himself—Doug Dale.
