So this is the box joint jig I made this weekend. I made this in preparation for a project my little sister ask me to build for her. The plans were just a hodge-podge of various designs I’ve seen here and around the web. I definitely built the fence too high and the supports that ride the tracks too long, so I will have to modify it a little.
I’m using standard circular saw blades stacked together as dado blades. This gives me a 3/8” dado. My test joint worked out pretty well. I will say that it did take some pretty good force from my deadblow mallet to get it together. I’m not sure how much glue would stay in the joint if my first test had not been a dry fit. Any advice on how to tweak it just a little would be greatly appreciated.
All in all I’m pretty pleased though.
