Half lap joints are a popular way to join two pieces of wood together and can be used on a number of woodworking projects. One way to cut half lap joints is on a table saw. George Vondriska takes you step-by-step on how to create a simple jig for cutting half lap joints on a table saw. The jig allows you to safely run your wood pieces vertically across the table saw to cut accurate half lap joints.
