Simple, handy thin-strip ripping jig
Sometimes you need to rip several thin strips of wood to equal thickness to serve as edging, veneer, or bending stock, but slicing off thin stock on the fence side of the blade could prove unsafe. That's because it becomes awkward to use your blade guard and pushstick when you cut close to the fence. The solution: Run the wide portion of your workpiece between the fence and blade, cutting the strips on the side of the blade opposite the fence. You could accomplish this by measuring for each cut, but that's tedious and inaccurate. This thin-strip ripping jig does the job safely, accurately, and quickly.
