First Place Winner
     Danny Hellyar's Sliding Board Jack was named the top winning jig

Check Out the Winners
in our Jig Design Contest

38 entries were submitted to our Shop Jig Design Contest that ended Feb. 15, 2013. We were extremely impressed by the creativity, uniqueness and ingenuity evident in many of the clever designs shared by these exceptional woodworkers.

Selecting the winners based on creativity, function and clarity of design proved so challenging that a 4th place was added beyond the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places originally announced, plus multiple entries were chosen as 2nd, 3rd and 4th place winners. In all, 15 prizes are being awarded.

At left is the 1st place winning jig design, Danny Hellyar's Sliding Board Jack. Interestingly of all the jigs submitted that assist in accurately cutting or milling wood, this was the only one intended for use with hand tools. All the others are used either to hold workpieces being applied to power tools, or to serve as assembly presses.

Our sincere thanks to all who participated for taking the time to share your design ideas. We hope it will help inspire more of us to take advantage of how useful toggle clamps are to enhance our woodworking accuracy and safety.
