Brilliant! I need to make a jig for cutting splines. I love joining picture frames with splines because they just look awesome in my opinion and I hate to use brads or nails or any other hardware to fasten the frame corners. But I do not have a bandsaw yet and cutting splines on my table saw (I am still just learning all this great woodworking stuff) has been a bunch of trials and few tribulations. :)

Thanks. I agree it’s brilliant, but any brilliance involved is definitely not mine. Here are some plans for a much fancier version.
I took some inspiration from that, and from a few other similar builds I’d seen around the web.

So I just went to use this for the first time and realized the arm didn’t reach over as far as I needed it to. No big deal, I just made the slot a little bit longer. But if you make one, plan it so that the arm can just about reach the blade.

Sweet. Much better than spending the $25 at rockler.

Nice job. One of these has been on my shop to-do list forever.It’s a great shop jig that should be in every woodworker’s arsenal.I’ll probably build it when I need to cut a bunch of 1/4” strips for edge banding. :-)

Nice jig. A safe method for thin strips. Thanks for posting.

Nice design well executed. It’s amazing how everything old is new again. Simple is always better – and timeless.

As for bearings, I use the guide bearing off one of my router bits. Easy to remove and use with a 1/4-20 bolt.
