Here’s the blank for the brackets I’m cutting out. Step one is to do the rough cut with the jig saw. Then cut a notch with the band saw. Then sand them to the final profile. Then route the edges. Then drill holes, and finally screw them to the posts. I have to make about 30 of these, so I hope the band saw, router and the sander are up to it. While I was getting a new jig saw, I also got a drill press since it was on sale. I knew there was an upside for the jig saw burning up. It sure is nice having a room to do all the wood working in though. It’s been a long time since most of my wood working tools were able to get some use.
