Description

These instructions are a complete step by step guide that will show you how to build a vise-mounted jigsaw table.

This project is designed to be an EASY build – no crazy joinery.

About the plans:

  • Formatted for normal sized (8.5″ x 11″) printer paper, so you can print them at home.
  • Includes Imperial (U.S.) version AND Metric version!
  • They also include:
    • A complete shopping list for the materials you need.
    • A complete list of parts you need to cut with all the dimensions necessary (with images).
    • Step by step instructions that accompany and compliment the build video.

About this Jigsaw Table:

  • Dimensions: 19″ x 12″ x  9″.
  • Dimensions (metric): 48cm x 30cm x  23cm.
  • Designed to use high quality Baltic Birch plywood for durability and strength.
  • Designed around 6″ jigsaw blades to allow for maximum depth of cut. With a 6″ jigsaw blade installed, you should be able to cut material that is about 1.25″ (3.2cm) thick.

Tools required (or at least strongly suggested) to build this project:

  • Table Saw
  • Miter Saw (or Table Saw Sled)
  • 23 Gauge Pin Nailer (Recommended, but not strictly necessary, you could use other fasteners)
  • Drill (and/or a Drill Press, preferably) with the following bits: 1/8″, 3/16″, 1/4″, 5/16″, 5/16-18 thread tapping, and 1/2″ fortsner.
  • For the metric version, you’ll need these bits: 3mm, 4.8mm, 6.5mm, 8mm, M8 x 1.25 thread tapping, and a 13mm forstner.
  • Sander/Sandpaper/File
  • Flat file
  • Coping saw (you can get by without this, but it sure made my life easier)

Because this is a digital product, no refunds are allowed.

    Haven’t had an opportunity to build it yet but I am really anxious to do so and really hope this will solve quite a number of problems for me. Once I get it build I will give it another review.

  2. Colin (verified owner)

    Excellent

  3. Jeff (verified owner)

    Very nice

  4. Steve Seeds (verified owner)

    Works really well, even better if I could find a REALLY fine-tooth 7″ jigsaw blade here in the UK.
    Thanks!

      Steve, thank you for writing this review! The longest I’ve seen is 6″ blades, but let me know if you find longer ones!

    Hi Tommy
    Just finished your jigsaw ( with a couple of modifications)
    I built the plan into a small work table
    The jigsaw is a cheap pendulum model from Bunnings ( our equivalent of your Home Depot)
    All functions are accessible except angle cutting which I never need.
    I already have an older jigsaw so this one is permanently screwed to the bench as you can see.
    I note your point about 150mm blades and used this design.
    The saw came with 100mm blades so I have ordered 150mm ( not yet installed)
    I think the cutting depth with 100mm would be a bit restrictive.
    I used an insert nut in the housing instead of tapping the timber.
    Also found that 8mm bolts did not have an exact 8mm shank (more like 7mm) so threaded a piece of 8mm rod for the 608 bearing.
    On the right you will see a circle cutting guide. Drilled and tapped a piece of 20 x 3mm flat steel for 6mm.
    Routed a 20mm x 3mm groove with a central 6mm groove through the 12mm ply. Underside is an Allen head bolt and M6
    mudguard washer with lock washer.
    Waiting on control switch to finish off
