I came across this plan a while ago on Woodmagazine.com and liked it right away. I already have a box joint jig for my router but it only does 1/2”. With a upcoming project that will be out of 1/4” material I decided it was time to build this.
The beauty of this jig is that the size of the joint fingers is dictated by the key stock you put in.
So far I only have 1/4” and 3/8” keys. I will add as needed.
I made it out of 3/4” oak ply and hardboard. It’s finished with one coat of shellac and paste wax.
This thing is a dream. I’ve already set it up for 1/4” stock in preparation for my project. It was a great project to build and will be with me for a long time.
Being as satisfied as I am with the outcome of this jig, the next “permanent” jig I make will be out of baltic birch ply.
You can find the plans for this here: http://www.woodmagazine.com/woodworking-plans/woodshop-projects/box-joint-jig/?page=1
The jig is well worth the time and money spent.
Thanks for looking…
