An Ugly Hack That Works! (members edit)

In this video I lash together the latest 10MW Loose Tenon Jig with some offcuts of MDF and use it to successfully join a pair of bevelled / mitred boards together. You can preorder the second batch of the jig (ugly lashed-together MDF accessory not included) at, or on the ‘merchant shelf’ directly below the video.

As I mentioned before, this will be my last of these video for a week or two as I take some time to be with family following the recent loss of our father; thank you for understanding.

I am always impressed with the way you look to solve challenges Peter. You are an inspiration to me. As for the LTJ I would very much like one, however between the exchange rate and the shipping cost it makes it fairly pricey. That may not stop me from having a go at making one though.

Take all the time you need with your family as others have said we understand and will be here when you are ready.

Thanks Don! Plans for the DIY loose tenon jig are in the Plans category of the forum. 👍


Hi Peter, thank you for even attempting to put out a video this week given the circumstances.

When you broke the news, it suddenly made me realise my own father passed away 40 years ago this year.

He was only 53, and I was 23 at the time, but strangely, the older I get, the more I think of him.

Take as much time as you can for yourself and your family.

When my father died, my employer at the time allowed me a massive two days paid leave 😔.

We will all still be here when you're ready to return.

Thanks Colin! Working’s a useful displacement, but I’ll be away with family next week.
