A fellow Okie asked me to post pics of my box joint jigs last night so here they are: First shows both the 1/4 and 3/8” jigs, secondis the rear view showing how they attach to miter gauge via 2 shop made knobs and routed ‘T track’, third showscloseup of the Jatoba pin glued into slot in jig, fourth is the 3/8 jig with my miter fence on top of it to show that I attach the miter fence the same way (only I have wing nuts on it), and last pic shows close up of back side of miter fence. I hope this helps as it is free, easy to build, and produces consistent box joints with my Freud box joint blades. I used Jatoba for the pins as it is very hard and I had worn the old pine pins out.
