I am new to woodworking and wanted to make a couple boxes (toy chests for my daughter)
I bought a table saw off of CL and am one of those lucky guys to have the tabbed proprietary craftsman miter slots…
The saw did not come with a miter gauge so I was unable to use that for the easy box joint jig I’ve seen on here.
Also, I was unable to use the miter slots as runners for the jig because of those darn tabs.
Here was my solution:
I used some scrap that I had around the shop to build the jig and waxed the bottom for less friction.
The sled used the outer edges of the saw as a guide and the front face can be removed and a new piece added to accomodate different size box joints.
