This is another really simple project that I’ve wanted to make for a long time, a spline jig. I make a lot of boxes, and splines are great joints for a box. You can make a really fancy spline jig, but I tried to keep it simple. I made mine out of 3/4’’ plywood, and 3/4’’ pine. You could just make it out of plywood, but I didn’t have enough plywood to finish the project. I used 1’’ wood screws, and glue to hold everything together. I cut out some brackets for more support. (Notice that two of my brackets are higher than one, that was my mistake!) I also had a handle someone gave to me, to make it easier to push through the table saw. It going to get a lot of use in the shop, and I’m glad I finally made one!
Here’s some better photo’s,

Cool jig. Did your camera mirror the picture? Namstfarc.

yes, simple and safe solution for making boxes with dandy corners. I have a few boxes in mind right now. I found some nice walnut scrap in a dumpster the other day. Perhaps I’ll use some of the dumpster dive pine I also have to make one of these.

Yes, I like your shop jig. I enjoy making them and always find it more fun rewarding to use mine then store bought jigs. You are doing a tremendous job there AJ
