i have been working on this jig for a little while and ive finally reached a point where it works really well so i figured id post it.
basically this is a box joint or finger joint jig that uses a template guide to guide the fixture. similar in theory to jigs that use a miter slot to guide except i dont have a miter slot so i had to come up with this.
anyways this particular jig is set up for 1/4” joints but you could make one set up for any spacing you wanted
it uses a 1/2 template guide and a 1/4” router bit. the bottom of the jig is grooved to fit the 1/2” guide and there is a positive stop at the rear to keep the router bit from coming out the back. i plan on redoing this jig and making a new base as this was my experimental set up and i did a lot of trial and error stuff, mainly in regard to dust collection. i finally gave up and just put the 4” hose straight to the jig and it works perfect
anyways hope you guys like it
