    That looks like it will be a very servicable jig Phil. I made something like it some years ago but in the end I found that dedicated one offs for a given joint were better for me. I have had a slot...

    I use a plastic blade. Acrylic will collect dust like crazy. Glass really is a better choice for pictures.

    Okay, 3/8" cup. Grab a plant mister with water and spray the concave face so that it is evenly moist won't take much. Let it rest for 15 minutes and I'll bet you have a flat piece of MDF. Now glue up.

    I have some nice ones that I thought I needed. With the exception of a few acoustic guitar building procedures they remain in their drawer. I wouldn't if I was you and I love buying tools.

    Before we all decide that your plane iron sucks, you need a $1000 plane, or that this is super complicated just increase the bevel angle 5 degrees and re-try. Simple stuff here - Occam's Razor fellas.
