I use my jig saw frequently in my shop. In the past, I would just clamp the workpiece to the edge of my workbench to make the cut. But after nearly cutting into my bench one too many times, I decided to make this versatile benchtop table.
The V-notch at the end of the table is great when I need to cut small curves in a workpiece. And the slots around the perimeter are perfect for attaching quick-release, drill press-style clamps.
