Drill Press Jig

   For a recent project, I needed to drill several holes into some dowels.  In order to hold the dowels more firmly in place to be drilled, I made this jig.  I took some pieces of leftover laminated particle board, stacked them three pieces high and screwed them together.  Then I sliced them lengthwise at 45 degree angles.  I screwed them together onto another piece of particle board with the angles facing each other.

   The angled pieces of wood support any dowel, pipe or other cylindrical object that I might need to hold steady.


   There is room left on each edge of the base so that the jig can be clamped to the work surface (in this case, the table of my drill press) if necessary.
