I have to build some louvre doors and thought this might be a job for the Domino. I needed a slot cut on an angle though so after a bit of thought I came up with this home made jig.

Yes I know it's a bit Heath Robinson but it does work believe it or not as can be seen in this next shot.

I had to build two jigs of course one for the left and one for the right side. It did take a bit of tweaking to get it right but I am happy with the results.

To ensure it was accurate enough I joined the two together using just the Domino dowels to make sure.

That is the test done now to build those doors.

It matters not if a jig is "Heath Robinson" as long as it works which it does for you. And I am sure it will be up to you usual high standard.thumbs up
