We now return you to your regularly scheduled program…

The photos are pretty much self-explanatory but here are some notes for when you make your version.
- The under rail is glued to the underside of the MDF ½” or so farther from the saw blade than needed. When dry, run the jig along the scroll saw table edge to get the finished width.
- If I had thought of it I would have drilled the bolt hole a little smaller than the bolt, then screwed the bolt through it from the underside and attached the wing nut/washer. The imbedded nut on the underside wouldn’t have been needed.
- To cut the adjustable pivot arm’s slot I drilled holes at each end, cut out the slot using a Dremel saw blade and filed the opening for bolt clearance. I could have cut the slot using the scroll saw I ‘spose.
- I could have used a smaller fender washer but it’s what I had handy so I cut off the excess using a Dremel/cut-off disc. Now I can use the jig for cutting pieces that are thicker than 1/8” MDF if I ever decide to.
- The pattern is hinged at two inch increments ‘cause that’s how tall my standard walls are. The hinges are masking tape. In the example the bottom level has been folded out of the way for a 2-story.
- Using the jig is easy: Set it, remove the pattern, insert your material (precut to the correct width), then run the jig along the edge of your scroll saw and cut away. Flip your material over and repeat the cut. TA DA! I usually make ends in pairs.
