Here is a finger joint jig I built off of some plans in a magazine I received. The funny thing is that after I built this, I saw the exact same design at Woodcraft but manufactured out of aluminum. I thought that was slightly ironic

Nice looking jig. Does it do different sizes 1/4, 3/8. 1/2?

Thanks and yes they do. The jig adjusts really well, you just need to work the joint out on scraps until it is perfect, then go for it on the stock.

Isn’t that the one shown in ShopNotes No. 8? That’s the one I’m working on so I can build a oak serving tray. It’ll be my first try at box joints.

Just sew your jig on roll the dice Woody. Great looking gear.
