Drawer planing fixture

Derek Cohen (in Perth, Australia)
This concept is not original, but I breathed on it to make it adjustable and rigid in use.

This is the basic design ...

The legs can open to 24" and close down to near nothing ...

The arms slide in wide mortices, and are held by screwed clamps into threaded inserts ...

To complete the build, the legs are covered in cork-rubber. This protects the inside of a drawer. It has the extra benefit of being a superb non-slip.

In use ...

Regards from Perth

Derek
