I thought it was about time to build one. The front face is interchangeable. I have a 1/2in and 1/4in pins. Each face is adjustable with a screw at the end (2nd pic). The last pic is the first test cut on some scraps. The triangle images that you can see are from a project that I had recently finished on the scarps I used to make the jig. It may not be pretty but it get the job done!

Sometimes simple and effective is the best way to go.

I need to build one of these, as I’m interested in learning new joinery techniques, and for me, this would be new. I’ve been interested in exploring box joints, as I figured I could make a jig similar to this one that would be easy to use and inexpensive to build, but still produce the desired results.

Thanks for posting this.

Very useful jig. Great work. How are the backs held on?
