About the Course

Our one day course provides an introduction to the original Leigh D4, D4R and the Leigh Super Jigs. This course is available to existing Leigh Jig owners and those considering the purchase of a Leigh Jig. The course will start with the initial setting up of the machines, students who purchase on the day will be able to set up and work on their own new jig during the course. Existing Leigh Jig owners will need to bring their own jig and routers with them.

The course covers types of jig, safe routing principles and step by step setting up of your jig for through dovetails and half blind dovetails. A typical drawer/box construction is then undertaken using the two different jointing methods.
