I made a jigsaw cutting station that works as a jigsaw cutting guide as well as a jigsaw crosscut jig. The build is solid, it doesn’t cost much and you can use it for a lot of workshop projects. The jigsaw cutting station lets you cut straight cuts up to 65cm, crosscuts, and cuts at an arbitrary angle depending on how you adjust the guide rail. The jigsaw cutting guide is removable and you can use it without the cutting station – great for short and precise cuts. If needed you can easily mount it back on the jigsaw cutting station. You will need only a few things to build this DIY workshop tool – plywood, aluminum angles, bolts, nuts, T-nuts, and a jigsaw. This homemade workshop tool is simple to make and it will help you with many projects. Watch the entire video for a step-by-step guide on how to make a jigsaw cutting station and a jigsaw cutting guide.
HOW TO MAKE A JIGSAW CUTTING STATION | DIY JIGSAW GUIDE CUTTING STATION
I started out by building the jigsaw guide – cut the plywood and the aluminum angles for the jig. Attached those to the plywood base using double-sided tape, bolts, and nuts. After that, I drilled several sight holes in the base and after that, I cut the slot in the jigsaw base (Note: cut the slot after having the sight holes ready).
For the jigsaw cutting station, I cut the baseboard and elevated it with timber to make space for the jigsaw blade. I measured the position of the slot and attached the jigsaw cutting guide to the jigsaw station using T-nuts, threaded rods, and wing nuts. I cut out the slot in the board using the jigsaw guide and marked several lines on the base and attached a guide rail on one of those for 90 degrees crosscuts. Additionally, I mounted a removable flippable aluminum rail with a wing nut as a guide to be able to cut at an arbitrary angle. This jigsaw cutting station is a great homemade workshop tool.

thanks for detailed info for measurements
Excellent work! Where can I get the plans for making such an amazing cutting station?
Hi I made one but unfortunately after it was nearly ready I made the cut and the jigsaw didn’t make it straight so I had to open the cut but now I can’t see where is the actual mark do you have any suggestions instead of I do another one just to see where is the mark ..
Very nice! By the way, the video shows the design for someone who is left-handed, right?
Perfect! Great design! Tomorrow I have to do this the same! Thanks buddy!
It’s great one. If you have pre-made, I would buy one. How much it’s cost? How long I have to wait? Or you print me one and where to order materials? My email is email@example.com. Please reply me as soon as you could. Thanks
Melhor gabarito para serra tico tico .Parabéns, ficou maravilhoso. 👏👏👏
Very good! Thanks for sharing. And this square, where can I get it; could you write your specs? I live in Brazil; Thanks
I’d love to make one since my jigsaw is the only powered saw I have but I don’t know how I’d make precise enough cuts without a jigsaw cutting station. Maybe a hand pull saw or Japanese saw would work. I need one anyway. 🤔
Awesome video! I’m just getting into wood working and as of now only have a miter saw and a jigsaw. Do you think there is a max length for one of these tracks? Like if it were longer would it run the risk of being less precise? I’d like to build one of these to rip longer sheets of plywood if possible, up to maybe 3 or 4 feet.
okay, it’s a shame it doesn’t work!
When cutting the wood, the blade simply deviates from the rail, it’s not possible!
I like your efforts and wonderful hard work also I like this amazing video because the plan is also available in the
description, I am not a professional woodworker but I am very fond of woodworking, Thank you for providing the best knowledge and information,
My all the best wishes are with you,
Zafar from Quetta Pakistan
For someone like me who couldn’t cut a straight line even if my life depended on it, this Jig will solve a lot of problems. Great video & thank you very much. Graham
непонятно как отпилить не от балды,а от размеченной карандашом,ведь ничего не видно
Muy bueno el video
Muy buena la idea,pero al Mister,le falto poner muchas medidas,largo,diametro de la broca foster,etc.
I guess those holes allow to easily remove the jigsaw without scratching the trench ?
something that makes your works to be unique here(into the word of online and social woodworkers) is that your work is very clean and simple to understand,no music, no noise, just sound of what you doing. thank you for the time you spend to create this video, Im ali, from IRAN..
It’s so easy to do!
Memang keren kawan tapi mumet endas ku rumit
Well I’m having a binge watch of your vids puts all the tips channels to shame , brilliant 😎👌🇬🇧
Hi, really good video, simple but very effective. One question, why did you use bolts to secure the guide rails and not just use screws – is this just personal choice? Thank you.
lik ed very good good luck
soy nuevo me gustarian las medidas o planos para empezar
Cara, você é muito bom. É uma grande inspiração. Grande abraço e muito sucesso!
Идея отличная! Однако гайки в дерево поставил не с той стороны, надо ставить снизу. При затягивании они просто вылезут.
parabéns muito bom valeu ….apreendi mais uma ….
all of those stations are cool and stuff, but why not use just thick steel L profiles
this plywood has like 15mm thickness?
it’s 15mm less of the blade length when you want to cut some thicker wood
Muito bom parabéns pelo trabalho
Thanks, I am new to woodwork and love watching. I will give a go.. ahahah
Sierra de calar
I think I’ll have a go at making this.. I really, really need to get straight cuts.. No more rubbish cuts..
Small point, you would love a little Dremel tool with cutting disc for all that small, fine metal cuts…
Boa, parabéns! Já estou quase a concluir a minha baseada no seu projeto. Abraço.
I use the "single track shelving brackets" for my guides. They are light weight, drilled for screws, low profile. Lowes price $ 8.00 for a 72" bracket.
I loved your video thank u for the help!
