I received comments on my most recent previous project post of the spline jig I have. So I thought I’d share these photos on how it is made.

My previous project post

Quintuplets
http://lumberjocks.com/projects/108735

Constructed of 3/4” MDF, 1/4” MDF, 3/4” plywood and 4/4 poplar scraps. The construction is pretty typical of most sleds. I did however incorporate removable and replaceable zero clearance inserts made from 1/4” MDF. The “T” tracks and accessories are from Rockler Woodworking. I’ve been using this jig for quite sometime and at some point I will add an adhesive measuring tape so I can dial in on exact measurements and repeat settings.

I got my inspiration from these fellow Lumberjocks. Both have provided details on how they constructed theirs.

Sure thing. This jig and the two others I posted from fellow Lumberjocks makes cutting slots for splines quick and easy

This is a nice set up. Sharing ideas from other LJ’s is great to come to your own personel needs. I need one, only keep holding off cause of a storage thing. You have inspired me to go ahead and build it and then finf the room later. ha! Thanks for a great build.

Thanks Dave ! I have the same storage issues because I have a small workshop. But if you make boxes like I do, then a jig like this and like the two made by the other LJ members I credited in this project post is incredibly useful. For me, finding space to store this when not in use was an easy compromise.

Sharp, beautiful and practical. Will be building new one of these soon, therefore going into my favorites too. Thanks again to the other LumberJocks that inspired this jig. Thanks for posting a decent write-up kdc68.
