The problem with featherboards is they aren't feathery enough. Meet the bristleboard.
We are redecorating and it's up to me to produce miles of trim. I bought a load of nice 1 x 4s, but I really needed 1 x 2s and ½ x 2s. There was a lot of ripping to be done, and I wanted it to go well. This jig was a big help, so let's go.
You will need a scrub brush, some scrap plywood, a pair of screws, a utility knob, and a functional workshop.
Step 1: The Business End
Take an old bristle brush or pick up a new one, and cut into nice chunks. I used a hacksaw with the bristles held loosely in a vice, and this step was over before I could capture an action shot.
