Sizing the guides
Size the side guides to match the length of the mortise. For an MDF jig, the width of the end guides matches the workpiece thickness, and the side guides fit between the mortise and the edge of the workpiece [top photo]. To maximize glue surface for a jig with hardboard guides, cut the end guides to span the workpiece and both cleats [bottom photo].
