thank god for grandchildren. they give me lot’s of excuses to do what I love doing. This is a box made of cherry with a walnut panel in the lid. The small tray that goes inside is my first attempt at 1/8” finger joints and I am pleased with the way they came out. I sure wish my photography skills were a little better

Do you use a router jig or a table saw jig?

I actually use both. for 1/8 joints I have to use the table saw. For 1/4 if the stock is wider than 1/4 I use the table saw with a dado set. All of my 3/8 joints are done on the router table because my table saw insert doesn’t allow yet for a 3/8 dado blade. If I do a 3/8 joint in 1/2” stock I usually set the bit height and then shim the stock that is being routed so I can make each cut only 1/8”. very time consuming but much better results
