Here is another great designed shop machine from the brain of our fellow Lumberjock, StumpyNubs.
This one cuts box joints like no other box joint jig I’ve ever seen or had the priviledge of using before. It is made from a variety of items I had around the shop, plus a few hardware items I picked up at my local hardware store. Unlike a lot of box joint jigs, it does not limit you to one size of fingers. If you can count turns of a crank, you can cut fingers for box joints with this machine as thin or as thick as you like.
The last two photos show four pieces of wood jointed together using this machine. These were cut from scrap wood and aren’t even carefully done as I would while making a project. They are just test pieces.
You can look in my blog section to see more about the build of this machine.
You can go here to watch a video of Stumpy using his machine.
You can go here to buy the plans for this machine. They are only ten dollars and well worth it. I highly suggest this machine to anyone who cuts box joints.
