Leigh Industries – the leader in precision, high quality woodworking jigs, has announced new lower prices for their most capable, most popular jigs!!

These are the best prices we’ve seen for a long time. Check our website for the new prices on the D4R Dovetail Jig and the FMT Frame, Mortise & Tenon jig.

What a great deal for Independence Day (even though they are Canadian)!!!!!

Check out the new Super Jigs for great deals! They are incredible jigs – not as versatile as the D4R , but they are close and much cheaper!

Check out Wood News for our Leigh Jig promotion next week. Blair

The Georgia Association of Woodturner’s meets in our Seminar Room tonight at 6:30pm. They are open to visitors, so come by and check it out. Jimmy Clewes will be demonstrating.


Jimmy is not your ordinary woodturner. Upon a first meeting one would think of him as a renegade, a free thinker and not within the stereotypical image of a woodturner. His charming British style, unending wit, creative mind and magnetic personality are only some of the attributes that make him popular in the woodturning demonstration circuit.

Our store is open until 8:00pm on Thursdays so you can do some shopping, too.

We listed the Leigh VRS in our last catalog even though we didn’t have all of the details yet. As I blogged a few weeks ago, I visited Leigh Industries to tour the factory and see some new products, like the VRS.

Now we have the details for the VRS. There are five models.

  • The VRS D24 is $69.99 and fits the D4R (and the D4, D3, D1258R, D1258).
  • The VRS 16 is $64.99 and fits the D1600.
  • The VRS 12 is $59.99 and fits the Super 12 jig.
  • The VRS 18 is $64.99 and fits the Super 18 jig.
  • The VRS 24 is $69.99 and fits the Super 24 jig.

Wait….what’s a Super Jig? See the details here on Wednesday.

We should have them in stock in July.
