I’ve looked at a lot of jigs for box joints, and decided it can’t be that complicated. I was right. I simply clamped a scrap to my miter, pushed it through. Attached another scrap, measured over, pushed it over against (after clamping it down at the right spot). Done. And the results were as good as I hoped for!

-- Measure with a micrometer, mark with a crayon, cut it with a chainsaw.
