How to build a simple jig to cut pen blanks to length

For a quick and easy method for cutting pen blanks to length, build this simple jig. Make the base from either ½” or ¾” plywood. This one measures 6x12”. Add a support, 3x12”, for attaching the hold-down clamp. Glue a miter-gauge guide to the bottom of the base for keeping the jig square to the blade. As a safety indicator, consider painting a red “caution area” where the blade enters the support. Finally, add a stop, held in place with the hold-down clamp for consistent lengths each and every cut.
