This is the adjustable box joint jig I built last week, using the Woodsmith plans. I’ve been debating on whether to build one from Stumpys plans or the Woodsmith plans. I think I would have been happier with the jig from Stumpys plans but I decided to build the Woodsmith version because it looked a little easier to build and I was able to get the plans for free.
I was please with the final product. It looked sharp and worked as advertised. The directions were kinda vague in a couple critical areas but I was able to work throu it. The only advice I have for others who want to build this jig is make sure your holes are drilled really precise and that you get the L brackets exactly square. Otherwise the jig won’t sit completely flat. I learned this the hard way and had to grind down my L brackets so the jig would lay flat.
