This is my new spline jig. I posted my old spline jig yesterday, it was a good spline jig for awhile, but I decided to make a new one. Instead of having the jig off to the side, I thought it would be nice to have the jig on top of the base of the sled. I made mine out of 3/4’’ plywood, and 1/2’’ oak for the runners. I also cut out some brackets out of 3/4’’ oak, to hold the jig in the right position. I also made a back rail, to hold the other side of the jig in the right position as well. Measure the size of the slots in your table saw if your making a spline jig, My slots might not be the same size as your table saw’s slots. A spline jig is really handy around the shop, I highly suggest making one.

Well done AJ. I have been seeing more and more spline’d miter joined boxes lately and am very tempted to start doing this myself. I really like the effect.
