Made a Box Joint / Finger Joint jig today.
Have seen several on this site and decided I needed one.
It is 12×12 made from 3/4 inch birch plywood and 4/4 mahogany. Guides are Maple cut offs.
Took several tries to get the joints to come out snug. Ended up useing screws in a loose hole from under neath to hold the Mahogany in place. That way I could loosen them and make micro adjustments to get the joints to tighten up.
Will probably pull one screw at a time and replace with dowels and glue to keep it alligned.
Also put in a picture of my “POOR MAN’S ROUTER TABLE”
Top is cook top cut out from friends corean countertop. The sides are 3/4 inch birch plywood cut offs.
Found out coren is as easy to work as wood. Drilled, and countersunk screws easily. Will have to look into useing more for other jigs. Only problem, only 1/2 inch thick. Not deep enough for T slots. Have to clamp edge guide to table top. But top is VERY smooth.
Hope you all enjoy Thanks for looking.
