How To Build A Jig To Help Cut Bevels

When creating stained glass, it comes in handy to be able to use tools to cut multiple pieces so they are uniform each time. It's quite easy to create a jig for cutting beveled stained glass, and it can be used for years. A jig is a fixture that can be used to speed up repetitive tasks.

Start with a small board and a piece of wood strip for the strip cutter edge. It should be the same size as the strip you install on your work bench, only shorter (the length of the board for the jig). The cleat is approximately 3/4" X 1-1/2".
