Table Saw Jointer Jig – Easy to Make

Table Saw Jointer Jig – Easy to Make

My Premier Project Plans:
My Free Plans:

If you don’t have a jointer but you do have a table saw then this tablesaw jointer jig can get you by. It’s easy to make and very effective. The jig isn’t as good as a jointer, you can’t adjust the depth and it doesn’t leave as good a finish but it does square the timber up very well. It depends on the height of your saw blade but I get a 4″ cut off my 12′ saw blade, so not too bad!

Even if you have a jointer then this can still be of use, especially if you work with reclaimed timber. I’m happier to put that sort of material with its dust, dirt and debris through my saw blade and save the jointer blades for when I’m working with better timber.

As always I’m happy to answer any questions.

    Idéia genial amigo! Parabéns!

  2. Ashok Moghe on November 2, 2022 at 4:07 am

    This is cool. Got to make one. Does the type of blade matter? Should it be a rip blade with 24 teeth or a crosscut blade with 40 or 60 teeth? Thanks in advance.

    Made one this morning , took all of 2 hours and it works like a charm and SO easy to use. Did a test and all was flat and square.

  5. Sandman on November 2, 2022 at 4:13 am

    Awesome! What was the mill thickness of the laminate piece you used for the out feed side of the jig?

  6. Fred Roussel on November 2, 2022 at 4:14 am

    Damn, I like it a lot. Now I know what I’m doing tomorrow. Tx a lot

  7. Lucas P on November 2, 2022 at 4:14 am

    I don’t understand how the stock goes though the leading face of the tool and then it’s forced outward at the tail of the tool by the yellow material. That sends the stock through canted, no? Is that the intent?

  8. NJB aquatics on November 2, 2022 at 4:15 am

    But I’m reluctant to put something through my jointer I do on the router table straight bit and offset the outfeed side of the fence mini jointer light on each side essentially

    This was very good to watch thank you

  10. Michael James Reed on November 2, 2022 at 4:18 am

    Awesome vid. Thank you for posting.

    Just made my first jointer jig works quite well. I’m looking forward to my B.C. fir 2X4 work bench table top I’ve been told I should be able to get away with just glue and clamp. I have a good piece of angle iron to start gluing the strips to should help take some of the bows out. I’ll probably do 5 or 6 lengths at a time then run those through the plainer. Then glue and clamp those together. Hope I can just get away with some belt sanding and or a little hand plaining. Thanks for some tips.

    This makes so much sense – no idea why everyone isn’t doing this. Great idea!

  15. jjau19 on November 2, 2022 at 4:23 am

    How does this work? Looks interesting just don’t quite get how it works

  16. XONIKZ on November 2, 2022 at 4:24 am

    This is a project I will definitely be making this summer. Warped wood is all I can afford these days.

  17. Kevin O'Neill on November 2, 2022 at 4:24 am

    I’m going to be milling boards out of 3.5" X 12" X 36" slabs of purple heart and laminate back in a butcher block fashion for my kitchen countertops your jig is perfect as I don’t have a jointer but do have a thickness planer. I think you have saved me some time and frustrations LOL. Any tips that might help me on this project would be great. Anyone. I have never used this wood. I’m reclaiming 12 of these slabs thought this would be a great way to repurpose this beautiful wood. Thank again.😊

  18. David Dier on November 2, 2022 at 4:27 am

    Still having trouble understanding the need for the laminate. Reduce resistance from the fence outfeed? Thanks for sharing. Good content!

  19. bowlchamps37 on November 2, 2022 at 4:27 am

    To my fellow Germans. Don´t build it in Germany. Especially not if someone else uses it.

  20. Dan Mitchell on November 2, 2022 at 4:27 am

    This is a real and usable build. Well done and appreciate the video. Your shop skills and procedures tho are most entertaining and will get my like and subscribe. Spot on good job friend.

  21. Gaff Guy on November 2, 2022 at 4:28 am

    Glad I found this channel! I made this today and it works great!!!!!

  22. john meinhardt-jensen on November 2, 2022 at 4:29 am

    Awesome. Thank you.

  24. whomadethatsaltysoup on November 2, 2022 at 4:32 am

    Brilliant idea! Thanks for sharing. I’m one of those out there who does not own a jointer – no space in my wee workshop – but this is definitely an easy win, and another great way to expand the usefulness of the good ol’ table saw. 👍

  25. vilod on November 2, 2022 at 4:35 am

    Thank you for not adding music to your videos.

  26. Sirus Kargar on November 2, 2022 at 4:36 am

    Just commited to buy a jointer thicknesser combo. Had I have seen this earlier I would have saved a bunch of time and money. Anyway genius idea. You about to save a lot of people a bunch of money. Especially the casual woodworker

  27. Mart Inn on November 2, 2022 at 4:37 am

    thanks so much for the tips and ideas ! this is great !!!

  28. Enshong Miranda on November 2, 2022 at 4:39 am

    Just what I was looking for! Can’t afford anything else right now but the table saw I just ordered. This’ll be a very nice jig to joint the lumber we get here.

  29. djtblizzle on November 2, 2022 at 4:41 am

    This is awesome!!!! 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽

  30. Dave Marriott on November 2, 2022 at 4:44 am

    great video….my jointer went down and this is exactly what I needed. Cheers

  31. Karel Kubela on November 2, 2022 at 4:45 am

    Genius! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  32. Anthony Smith on November 2, 2022 at 4:45 am

    i made a visrion of this where i shaved down the board from the back of the blade to the start so that i could edge/face joint up to six inches..

  33. Anderson Cesario on November 2, 2022 at 4:46 am

    I make Kevin Sorensen’s words, mine! Thanks legend👌

  34. Scott Gillespie on November 2, 2022 at 4:47 am

    So I am very new to wood working (as my question will show) but loving my journey so far. I am trying to understand what is happening with the jig that brings the wood into square? My brain cannot get over the idea that the additional “depth” is after the cut happens so how is that helping? It my head it seems like the magic would happened without that but obviously that is not the case. I expect this is intuitive to many but not to me yet if someone explains it, it will be like one of those hidden pictures you cant see. Here is hoping….

  35. George McKenzie on November 2, 2022 at 4:47 am

    Very nice jig
    Is that MDO?

  36. Eager Beaver on November 2, 2022 at 4:48 am

    Seriously I don’t know how I missed this Channel!. You are seriously one of the best craftsmen / designers on Youtube/Internet in my opinion!. We need more Ozzies/Poms like you doing this!.

  37. aaron garrett on November 2, 2022 at 4:51 am

    One of the coolest things I’ve ever seen done with a table saw! 🤯👏

  38. Amer Rasul on November 2, 2022 at 4:51 am

    My goodness! what an innovative way of using a table saw as a jointer. Neil, you are truly amazing, not only your craftsmanship but also you lovely Australian accent. Bravo!

  39. PUBLICIDAD ECOS on November 2, 2022 at 4:53 am

    !!Just love it!!! Thanks and greetings from México, my friend 🙂

  40. Bernard Douthit on November 2, 2022 at 4:53 am

    Pask – I have to agree with others that this is genius. You should patent this jig and sell it. The top could be set up to be adjustable. I just bought a Grizzly jointer and I’m about to send it back because I’m running out of patience with adjusting the 8 different table screws. I have a DeWalt 735 planer so even if this jig produces a few saw marks, I can easily plane them out – and sanding is also an option. One question, what type of stock did you use to build this and how thick is it? It may be in the notes, but I thought I’d ask just in case. I have some MDF shelving that I think will work well, but I also have 3/4" plywood – plywood seems like it could be a bad choice because of its layers. Thanks again. I have subscribed.

  41. Glenn Burch on November 2, 2022 at 4:53 am

    Built the jig and purchased the T shirt…..thank you. Did not have $1K for a jointer nor the room in my small work shop. Will be using the jig to join a laminated work bench top. soon…….tomorrow probably. I like your personality and I really like that T-shirt. I built the jig in a day using Melamine and used .040" thick sheet metal as the outfeed table. I initially had problems getting the jig square to the table, solved that with a better jig fit to the fence……….it must be snug! Can’t wait to use it.

  42. Jerry Pokerwinski on November 2, 2022 at 4:54 am

    I just finished making one of these based on your design. However, because I have a Ryobi table saw, I’ve had to make certain modifications that makes it look kind of over engineered. But at least its something and I had fun making it.

  43. hassan mohamed on November 2, 2022 at 4:55 am

    When the blade comes up it is just like sunrise

  44. Patrick Harmon on November 2, 2022 at 4:55 am

    Great idea, an awesome way to make due with what got, and to substitute for what you don’t have. Thank you and God bless 🙏

  45. Jere Kibler on November 2, 2022 at 4:55 am

    Great idea! And man your photography is incredible!!

  46. J C on November 2, 2022 at 4:56 am

    Could you finish squaring it up with the jig rather than remove the jig to do the last 2 sides?

  47. Kevin Arnold on November 2, 2022 at 5:00 am

    Fabulous! I just finished building a remote office and this would have really helped squaring up my rough cut redwood lumber. I’m going to build one today to use for my next project!

  48. Micah Howell on November 2, 2022 at 5:02 am

    Very easy to follow along with and you didn’t make it complicated. I will be building one of these in the future! You just save me a ton of money lol

  49. butthole_glory69 on November 2, 2022 at 5:02 am

    Just built this jig and confirm it does work excellently.

  50. Francois Greybe on November 2, 2022 at 5:02 am

    Hello from South Africa. This video came up on my suggested list and I immediately put it in my watch list because this is something I’ve been trying to achieve with my table saw. However, and I mean no disrespect at all, I am completely confused by the technical details you present in the video. I only mention this because I’m a supporter of the feedback methodology that may enable you to improve your content. If I’m not in your target audience then no harm/no foul… Thank you none-the-less for the cool video.
