after reading several blogs, I couldn’t help but try my hand at making this (made mine out of Goncalo Alves ). from Bridge City’s KM1 to this very simple design, it seems inevitable that others will join.
the build is very straightforward, rabbet a piece of any wood, cut in half, add a stop, put an adjusting screw and a locking bolt (I used a winged nut). then you’re 95% done. all you have to do next is adjust the screw for the kerf width. In reality, this screw would be the means to tighten or loosen the fit of the joint. I find it perfect in all aspects. Simple build, minimal materials if not scraps, low hardware costs and best of all the control it gives the user to dial the joint fit to his hearts content.
