I have a bunch of things on my list to build where I can use box joints to add a little to the builds. So, last week I decided to build a box joint jig. I wanted one that had the flexibility to cut multiple sizes with the same size blade and repeatable results. And since I am too frugal to buy one, I wanted to build it myself. I looked at many videos on youtube with different types and finally settled on this one. The plans were downloaded from the Ed Stiles “Box Joint Jig” video on youtube. So far I am really pleased. Just make sure that your blade is actually a multiple of 1/16” since this jig is based on using a 16 tpi threaded rod. I still need to round over the edges and put on a coat of poly. The last picture show the fit using my dado stack configured for 1/4”.
