Seat Drilling Guide Mk 1


This Jig allows you to easily drill holes in chair seat blanks for leg, arm post and spindle mortises. You can see it in action on my YouTube channel, or my IG feed/IGTV at "barton.kyle".

The basic Kit includes the following:
Barton Boring Jig
Set-Up Block/Angle Gauge
Threaded Rod with 5 jam nuts
1/2" Drill extension shaft - 10" Long
1/2" Coupler - To connect the shaft to the 1/2" shank drill bits
1/2" Rod End Bearing

Please Note: This Jig also requires a drill capable of accepting 1/2" shank drill bits; and a 1/2" shank brad-point bits with a long center-spur to work correctly for acute angles (Trident Drill Bits). This Kit should work fine if you are already using these types of "chairmaking" bits with a 1/2" shank.
