Undoubtedly could altho I've not investigated it thoroughly w/ that in
mind. I think it truly is too heavy to be fully satisfactory for use w/
the Leigh jig, anyway; I _was_, however, hoping to do something in
reasonably quick period of time here and that's gone pretty much by the
board. I cut them by hand yesterday afternoon in less time than spent
fooling around w/ the jig assembly and all...
Once get everything set up, I presume it will be a help when do get onto
the multiple items of same thing (namely drawers) that is on the
horizon; I just thought I'd make a trial run for a one-time thing as
practice and that turned into a quagmire mostly...
