Making the 45 deg spline jig was easy. Cutting the 22 1/2 deg splines and a jig for that was a little more challenging. So I made an insert for the 22 1/2 splines that sits in the 45 deg jig. Works well and saves space

Good idea. Let’s see the splines it made.
I probably would have been lazy and just clamped it to one side. I bet your results are much nicer than mine would have been.

Just added the best picture of a finished box, I think you can see the splines if you zoom in. What is nice is with the 23 1/2 deg jig is, if play with the blade height you can make all the splines “even”. With out the 23 1/2 deg jig the splines are longer on one side. (just using the 45 deg jig that is)

That is a great way to utilize a regular spline jig to cut splines for a flag case—great idea! Simple and effective—can’t ask for more than that.

That is a great idea. I might have to make one for my spline jig. One question shouldn’t that be 22 1/2 deg to be half of 45 deg?

Festus Yes 22 1/5. I made the “wedges” on the miter saw. Used a Woodpeckers 45 deg triangle and set the saw to 22.5.
