SPLINE JIG.

This is a spline jig, I made from available construction plywood that has been sitting around my shop. It is a combination of several spline jigs that I’ve seen on YouTube as well as on “Big Al the Box Guy’s” blog.

My goal is to use all of the construction materials that have been sitting around my shop for many years for “someday” which is now.

I’ve done this before; you can see my Butt Bench Step Stool project/blog in which I used material from the shop.

In the future, I have to take into consideration the time it takes to build one and the quality of the material I use. In this case, it has a coat of seal coat conditioner and waterborne polyurethane. (One coat of each for moisture protection from the humidity in my shop, which can reach 80%)

Haven’t posted in awhile.

More stuff coming.

As always, your comments, criticisms and suggestions are welcome!

Cool Tom. Looks like your getting yourself sorted.

Looks like it works just fine judging from the splines in the box…
One other observation …sacrilege (or however the Hell it is spelled) ...you put a coffee cup drink on your table saw and that is a big ring stain waiting to happen…Ouch…!

Greg,

Not my current coffee cup. Plastic, no stains! I hate rust stains. LOL! Really!

The box is finished but my blogging is not.

Want to post in order of what I’ve been doing vs. talking about doing.

Thanks!

Looks like it will do the job Tom. The cost is perfect. Spline away.

Jim,

Thanks! I had to make the jig to finish my box prototype project. Doing a few blogs as I’ve not done much posting since my chainsaw mill madness took over. LOL!
