A spline cutting jig from plans by BradNailor (David), Thanks David! David's blog has the Sketchup plans, a good place to start.
Nothing magic here, just a solid jig made out of some surplus ply I had laying around. A rockler track and couple of t-bolts and knobs with two sliding stops make it pretty versatile.
One thing learned is use a blade that produces a flat bottom kerf, usually not a combination or ATB blade since most of these leave a rounded kerf. Great discussion of the best blades to use for cutting splines is here.
Update: Brad_Nailor’s Project post MDF Miter Spline sled is excellent also, has several good pics of his original jig.
