I am currently working on a bookcase where I wanted to do some really quality joinery which in my case means no visible fasteners.
I found this router jig in Taunton’s Jig and Fixtures text. I highly recommend this book as a good source of ideas. The jig is designed such that the one fence is fixed 90 degrees relative to the alignment block, and the other fence floats on a pair of slots.
Here in my jig I have trimmed the fence with a 1/2” router bit. This will allow me to cut any size dado from 1/2” up including the non standard 23/32” plywood.
The floating fence can be set at an angle which I am using to cut tapered sliding dovetails for my shelves.
Made from 1/4” hardboard, poplar, and a little scrap oak. The T-Nuts are from Rockler.
