I took a 1×4, cut two 45’s and took two 1×4, 10 inches long and put in V groove, and made adjustable slide to cut splines at different depths.

Jim, I need a better spline jig, and I like the word “adjustable”! Any chance of getting a bigger photo and/or a couple of angles?

I used a 1by4 18 in long AND cut 2 45s in the center 3/8 from the bottom so it sets in the miter slot on the right of the blade then I cut a 1by4.75 10in long and 4in 10 long I used 1by and grove it with the rotor then you adjust blade to how deep you want your Splines thanks for the comments

ok, yours beats mine. but I bet I built mine faster (actually I doubt that, I’m notorisouly slow even on simple projects). I think if I do more boxes like the one I build, I may steal your basic design. One flaw with mine was that it would be nearly impossible to use more than once (resetting my modest router table setup with any degree of precision would be almost impossible. Yours however looks like just the ticket. Thanks for letting me know about it. All jokes aside, it really is nice and looks quite functional.

Jim: I too like the adjustable part of this jig.
I’ve built two but none with the adjustment..
very nifty. I, like others ,would appreciate photos or plans of the adjustment feature..
