Adhere two pieces of oak together to create a block. Use screws and glue to secure the pieces.
Mark a rectangle where a notch will be cut from the block, then cut the notch with a band saw.
Use a drill press to drill a hole through the center of one leg of the block (Image 1). Use a fence on the drill press to prevent the piece from spinning.
Push a threaded rod through the hole and secure it on either side with a T-nut (Image 2).
Glue a piece of flat metal to the end of the threaded rod. This piece pressures the small object and holds it in the jig. Note: Too much pressure can cause the jig to split.
Cut a piece of rubber down to size and place it on the bottom, clamping the surface of the jig.
