My shed is slowly evolving into a proper workshop.
Got my shop vacuum cleaner and dust collector finally delivered 👏 🤗Β 
Temporarily repurposing the hose from an old vacuum cleaner, but I want to replace that with a longer one, so I can move around the hose, leaving the collector and vacuum cleaner more stationary. Anyway.. Much more fun working in a clean environment 😎Β

Today, I had the time to put together my Binding Jig, I bought from TLC Guitargoods in Holland.

Β Base plate, body carriage where easy,installing the jig too. I had some issues lining the holes of my cheap router to the jig, but it all worked out fine in the end.
I put a coat of shellac on both the base plate and body carriage to protect it a little and I hope it will allows the carriage to slide more easily on the base plate.

Tested the body carriage with my Seagull S6
I might have made the carriage a little too big, it should be a tad smaller. But I can always adjust it if needed.
Or build a new carriage for smaller instruments.

very cool @koendb. You went high tech with the binding jig and I went low tech. πŸ™‚ A binding jig will be on my list of tools I want to get eventually. I've been eyeing the one made by elevate. Seems really neat and it looks like less clamps and set up. But for now... I'll keep with my low tech stuff. πŸ™‚

Busy building my mortise and tennon jig.
Now trying to figure out a clever way to hold the neck with the possibility to add a slight angle, as well as hold the body.
Preferably with a way to remove anything so I can extend the use of this jig.
I'll come up with something, based on examples of other jigs πŸ™‚

Hi @koendb

It seems like a long time ago that I made these but I don't know if any of these images might give you and idea or two. I made my jigs with hinged plates so that the angle was easily adjustable. I haven't used them all that much but they did work pretty well.

Cheers

Darren
