Tablesaw Rip-Fence Saddle

An inexpensive, shop-built jig for top-notch machining and joinery.

Build this auxiliary wood fence and mating saddle to bevel-cut the post caps for the pergola on page 61 of the April 2002 issue of WOOD® magazine, or build it for supporting stiles and other workpieces, as shown in the photo at left. Use one hand to push the saddle and workpiece across the blade, and your other hand to keep the saddle riding firmly on the auxiliary fence. Wax the mating pieces if necessary for easy sliding.

An inexpensive, shop-built jig for top-notch machining and joinery.

Note: Our auxiliary fence is screwed securely to our metal tablesaw rip fence, with the top edge of the fence sitting 1" above the top edge of the metal fence. The auxiliary fence must be 90° to the saw table. Size your wood fence so the saddle rides smoothly, without free play, along the top edge of the auxiliary fence.
