So how did you shape the jig?
Since it is just a jig, a hole for filing buttons, or for a pivot point on your belt sanding table would certainly be fine and would not effect the appearance of the final part, but your jig has no center hole; so how did you shape it?
I am also wondering how you cut it on the band saw without cutting into the hidden jig? I guess you could flip your workpiece and trace a line using the jig as a template, then flip the piece back (line would now be visible on the top) and cut close to the line instead of close to the jig.
Just thinking as this gets filed in the to do pile.
Thanks for this share (and all your others.)
Sorry, I missed the cover plate description - that would let you cut and sand close the the final size without damaging the jig.
