« Part 43: Drill Press Table with Table Saw Style Fence and a lot more! Part 44 of The Stumpy Nubs Workshop series Part 45: Build your own Festool Domino style Hand-Held Mortising Machine! »

Maybe a bit too much hype? Well, I’m pretty excited about this new “invention”. I think it’s an improvement over the box joint machine I built a couple of years ago. Not that the first one wasn’t perfectly fine, I just thought I could make it even better. So here’s the new jig- presented in a mock interview format that I think you’ll enjoy!

Another fine stumpyfied jiggy machine & infotainment video!!!

I posted a question on YouTube, but figured I’d ask here as well….

Is this new jig capable of cutting dovetails???

Good way to get the points across!

That looks like the “Ultimate Box Joint Jig” to me! I really want one but don’t think I have the skill to build it. But wait…..I have a lot of talented friends who can build one for me. Now to find a volunteer…..

When you find one, Andy, have him build one for me too please! Sometimes I have a hard time understanding how a jig works. I get this! Thanks for sharing Stumpy.

Randy- It will cut dovetails… but only the tails. It can’t cut the pins, so it’s pretty useless for that type of joint. But that just means you have to build a box joint jig AND a dovetail jig!

Andy and Candy- Don’t let the looks fool you- it is actually really easy to build. It’s mostly done with the table saw. I built it in a day once I got the design all figured out. If you want to try, PM me with your email addresses in a few days and I’ll send you a free set of plans since you’re regulars on the big “Stumpy Nubs” thread.

And all this time I didn’t think you could improve upon perfection :^p

It sure looks like a slick system

Candy, I sent Stumpy a pm. If Jim has any mechanical talent maybe he can help us build it!

Using a green screen now? whoa! This isn’t woodworking any more, it’s TV production!!
If you don’t have sawdust on the lens it’s not a real woodworking show. :)

This looks like a fail safe jig. Something I will have to look into in the next few weeks. At first it looks like a challenge, but most things do until you get started. I will be giving this another look soon. Thanks Stumpy for making a good jig better.

The green screen gives us more options for the various videos we do, like tool reviews, blogs, etc. And if I use a photo of the shop when it’s clean, I don’t have to tidy up before filming!

In this video I used an altered photo for behind Mustache Mike. Can you tell whose shop he is in? (I did have to remove a lot of the clutter, but the benches, etc are still in the photo.)
