“BIG difference” then you don’t state what is the big difference! Jig or Fixture- this clamp works on box joints.

You may also want to look at this jig which is less complex and can be used on many different types of joints .

Your box clamp looks good. But calling it a box joint jig is a bit miss leading. What is commonly called a box joint is the same as a finger joint. As pictured. And there is a number of jigs out there to build them…..... Just trying to explain papadan’s remarks above….........see picture

Box Joint

””A finger joint, also known as a comb or box joint, is a woodworking joint made by cutting a set of complementary rectangular cuts in two pieces of wood, which are then glued. To visualize a finger joint simply interlock the fingers of your hands at a ninety degree angle; hence the name “finger joint.”””“

Thank you everybody for viewing and commenting on this project. I will admit that calling it a jig or fixture was a mistake- The reason for referring to it as a “box joint jig” is what the original author calls it. In retrospect I’d call it a “clamp”. A good Forum question “What is the difference between a jig and fixture” best to everyone

Wow! Looks great!

That sure would tone down the panic when trying to apply glue, fit together, find cauls, find clamps, align cauls and clamps, tighten clamps, then check for square before the glue kicks in….
