This month’s project will be a two-part project that was originally scheduled for September.  Matches will build a simple jig, using a miter saw to cut the wood, then a laser cutter to mark a ruler on it.  Once the jig is done, they will use it to make a paracord survival bracelet.  Matches are invited to take their jig with them to use again to make more bracelets, belts, dog leashes, etc…
