Wanting to make some boxes with finger joints I had to make the jig first. Pretty simple design. 3/4” Birch plywood with adjustable widths and removable back up board. Right and left sides are adjustable but don’t think I’ll really need to move the left side. I used piece of 1/4” hard board that can be remove and replaced to minimize tear out. As you can see in photo 4 I just turned it upside down and screwed it back in place. Photo 3 shows work in progress. The best idea (not mine, got it here) was the shelf to let boards ride on. Makes for a smoother transition over the saw blade inserts. If you look close in photo 4 you’ll notice it also has an micro adjustment. Or as I like to call it, masking tape. Thanks for looking. Boxes to come shortly.
