I had a need for a spline jig in our shop in Az. so I made this insert for the existing dado jig used in the table saw.
It is made from5/8” maple plywood and just glued together It is mounted into the sled with 4 screws so it can be easily removed. I used it on a mitered table apron and it worked very well.

It is 18” long and made to just fit inside the bridges on the sled it has 4 gussets front and back.

cheers, Jim

Nice design! My old one is falling apart and I will use this design in my new one, if you don’t mind!

Nice and simple Jim. I think spline jigs are a favorite in most shops.

Good idea for a handy Jig, I’m thinking I should make one very similar may come in handy for a 2×4 project I’m thinking about. Thanks Jim another great useful project.
