My joints have been basic to say the least up until now,dowel, pocket hole, mitre, butt, lap and half lap… you get the idea! so to extend on my repertoire, I decided to go with Mario Cappellano (thewoodfather) and his basic jig, I won’t be doing them often, so don’t need anything fancy, but not having a dado set up was the decider on choice.
It only took a couple of hours to make, from scraps, and an angle bracket I had lying around, the latter acting as the guide pin. I made it out of 3/4” Ply and some left over 2×4, I built it to make 1/2” fingers.
I then did a test joint, to be honest it is a bit on the tight side, it did take some persuading to interlock, but that’s probably because I didn’t do anything to tidy up the cut edges, a minor adjustment might be needed but not much, I am certainly pleased with it.
As you can see, the joints are ever so slightly proud, but that was down to the blade height, and could have soon been sanded level, but there are no gaps!
