Cutting splayed tapers takes a great deal of complex trigonometry. You can find lookup tables but even then you have to have an accurate bevel gauge and angle gauge. The TW JS3 Jig makes this incredibly easy and quick setup!

  1. This is fantastic! I used Matthias’ spreadsheet when I last built a stave djembe using splayed miters, the jig I threw together was something woefully less than sufficiently accurate.

  2. That’s such a cool jig!! And it’s true that my brain would explode if I tried to figure out all the different angles to cut!
    Nice promo for Jimmy Diresta’s toolbox kit as well!

  3. You’ve really created a playful environment in your shop. The creativity is proudly displayed and fuels the energy of your workspace. It’s not at all traditional or expected but seems a good outlet for you. I wonder if this direction is for personal benefit or if you’re trying to display maker skills in an approachable manner. Awesome jig btw and I’m happy you’re delving into more technical content. All this to say I see you and I’m happy for you.

  4. This is really cool Dave. I’ve been wanting to make a waste bin for my home office for some time. Firstly this helps as I couldn’t find the name of the cut (splayed miters) and secondly the jig will be a huge help. Thanks 👍🏻

  5. Fantastic work, Dave! It turned out beautiful! 😃
    That’s a real work of art!
    Stay safe there with your family! 🖖😊

  6. That’s a cool jig. I made a jig to do this same thing many years ago which did not require you to angle your saw blade. I used a sled with a jig of the proper angle for the edges of the staves attached to the sled. Then the jig was angled so that the bottom edge of the stave, at both ends, was just touching the saw blade which is also the same as being flush with the edge of the sled. Then slide the sled and cut the stave. The drawback to this is you need to make an angle jig for each different angle you want depending on how many staves are in the piece. The one I made was for 12 sides. Not something I use very often so depending on the price of this jig you might want to make your own setup.

  7. This was a cool project to watch come together. It’s a bit too complicated for me, but fun to watch you make. Still diggin’ the hat.

  8. I really hope this video does well for you. From my standpoint, you really nailed it!

    The feel, the pacing, the building something for the sake of making it with no apologies, glossing over all the complexities, while focusing on a specific part of the build. All of it was awesome!

    I love what you did with this video. The fact that what you made was also really cool? That was icing on the cake

    I can’t wait to see more videos from you like this one

  9. Cutting compound angles is intimidating as hell. This little gizmo looks like it takes a lot of that pain away. Nice way to showcase it. Thanks for sharing!

  10. Just love how you get an idea in your head to recreate something in wood and then pull it off! So cool!

  11. Dude! Don’t you know CA glue isn’t food safe!? 🤪

    Came out awesome! You sounded so excited about this on the podcast, and it shows in the video I think. 👍🏻
