Jigsaw Conversion

Adding grip handles to a kids jigsaw

Jigsaw Pincushion

Helped out our daughter at the weekend with a school project. She wanted to add some knobs to a jigsaw to make it easier for young kids to grab. I had some dowel spare, so we used that. It was too small to use a power tool to cut, so I went with the mitre box and a Japanese pull saw. Still took a while to make 24 cuts.

Since it was meant for young kids I also sanded down each edge a little.

Fixed them to the jigsaw with a small finishing nail and a drop of wood glue.

I call it The Pincushion.
