Makers often create a variety of special jigs, rigs, and fixtures simply to be able to complete some other creative project.

Common examples are metalworking clamping fixtures, photography or videography rigs, and woodworking jigs like cutting sleds and router guides.

But how about other creation-supporting aids related to crafting, sewing, cooking, and so on? We want to see them all!

Show how to make the things that help you to produce efficient, safe, or repeatable results in your projects and you could win!

Projects that simply include the use of homemade jigs, rigs, and fixtures are eligible as well - at minimum, be sure to highlight the item and provide some useful details for how it was made.

The Jigs & Rigs Speed Challenge is closed.
