JIGS

Often my work calls for the use of a jig in order to streamline my process and create uniformity during assembly. A jig is described as a type of custom-made tool used to control the location and/or motion of a material or another tool. Recently i was working on a small piece and i was reminded of the hap-hazard beauty that can sometimes be the result. 

Here are some interesting Jigs from the last few months.  

The jig above was used to create this stack of components. 

While making Monument to Futility I had to create a carriage to hold a pulley caster.  Sometimes my approach is a little bit intuitive.  

The result is the interior potion holding the caster.

Monument to Indecision called for this 6ft long beaut.
