got to thank Alonso for this. made one out of Goncalo Alves and Ebony (both were scraps).

a little tweaking was all it needed and it gave me nice tight joints…

now, has anyone made a finger joint or box joint jig with the kerfmaker?

Sweet. They are a nice little tool. Never thought about a finger joint jig using one. Usually those are done with a dado blade, but with this they wouldn’t have to be. (?)

Welcome to LJs. You should also post this as a project and tag it with ‘kerfmaker’. Then you can join the club.

Thats another nice kerfmaker, congratulations, very simple little jig but it really helps make nice tight dadoes,

I just finish the version 2, its all the same but it comes with a sliding dovetail, just to keep everything secure in place.

Nice work

the jig is so simple, makes you wonder why it took so long to be. very simple and very precise that you can dial the fit to your desire.

Thanks Jim for the welcome…
