Bought a Finger joint blade set from L.V. awhile back so needed to make a sled for it, Blades cut 1/4” and 3/8” so built the sled to cut both then I thought may as well do 1/2” too! Made from stuff kicking around in the shop. 1/2” BB base with Birch rails, 1/4” hardboard replaceable sliding kerf guides and the fingers are made from some scrap Jatoba flooring. With a little fine tuning it makes a very nice joint, practice board was some pine scraps.

Nice sled. Looks like you’re all set up to make some boxes. Those are sure some tight fitting joints.
