This week I made a finger box jig, tenon jig, miter sled and a aux. fence for dadoing. The finger jig will cut 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, and 3/4 fingers. The sample shown was the first try and it was dead on.

I currently have an 18-year old Craftsman benchtop table saw with non-standard miter slots. Once I get my new table saw I’m sure I’ll go crazy making all the jigs I’ve been thinking about for some time now. Thanks for the inspiration!

I like your miter sled. I might modify mine a little now. Looks like you can cut about any length stock you need t.

A nice set of well built and useful jigs.
I have studied your box joint jig and can’t figure out how you adjust it for different width fingers/slots?

I made different plates for each size that is attached to the bottom with screws. The back plate in the middle is also removable to match the size being cut.
