Kerf Maker Box Joints #2: Making uneven Box Joints

03-13-2018 06:39 AM by George_SA | 0 comments »

With my 5 Minute Kerf maker, I can make custom sized box joint fingers. This tutorial is mainly for me to remind me in the future how this works :) Here are a few diagrams and pictures that explain the how to. EDIT 13 Mar 2018Diagrams at the end explain how to when there are more than 3 fingers. Important to take note of the Kerf Maker orientation and also that the fingers that are cut will be the reverse image of the spacers on the sled. Never mix up the sequence of the spacers. ...

Kerf Maker Box Joints #1: Easy Box Joints - How To

02-12-2018 03:12 PM by George_SA | 1 comment »

EDIT 13 Mar 2018Part 2 explains it more clearly and works for even spaced and uneven spaced fingers. While thinking about making a joint that is similar to making Box Joints, I came up with the idea to use my 5 Minute Kerf maker and Small Sled to make Box Joints. It works like thisYou use a stop block and spacers and the Kerf Maker on the sled to cut the Box Joint Fingers. The 1st step is to align everything for the 1st cut. I switched the spacers and the Kerf Maker around to save...

finger joint jig, new design?

04-14-2016 04:38 PM by ChelseaGeorge | 5 comments »

Hi everyone, thank you for adding me to the group. I made a video about what I believe to be a new design for a box-joint (or finger-joint) jig and deposited it on YouTube for public viewing. If I’m working things properly, this should be the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dr2mpwzUgEM I hope you find it worthwhile.

Cherry File Cabinet #3: Box Joints (or how not to make a plywood box)

12-30-2014 12:22 AM by JimYoung | 2 comments »

Ok, so the carcass (correct term?) of the file cabinet is all glued up and came out really nice. I have a few touch ups with a sanding block to do. I set off this morning in search of decent 1/2” plywood to make the two drawers. I ended up driving 1/2 an hour into town to Rockler to pickup a sheet of 1/2” Baltic Birch and some 1/4” for the bottoms, along with some satin Arm R Seal. Made a side trip on the way home to Lowes to spend the gift cards that were burning a ho...

Mini hand tool cabinet #4: Hand-cut finger joints

09-24-2014 12:00 AM by JSOvens | 5 comments »

Well, I finally worked up the nerve to finish preparing the panels I glued up in the last entry. I was worried that removing any residual twist/cup/bow from the panel glue-ups would result in very thin panels. I discovered that once I ripped the panels in half (one half for each of the door and wall-mounted component of the cabinet) that there was very little flattening to do on the narrower boards. A bit of hand planing on one face, followed by thickness planing (same method as shown in this...
