What? You don't like using a rasp and files? :D Looks like a real labour saver, Dan. Well done! [:Y:]

Ok, so I'm a dummy.... So you have a base on the jig that gives you the angle? Then you control the depth of the cut by eye? And move the body around on the jig to give you access to different areas?

I think I can use that. Thanks Dan !!!

In my case, using a rasp and files saved me the labor of building the jig....

Looks great but I like using my old Dragon Tail rasp, goes through Mahogany like a hot knife through butter.
