This is a very cool multi-purpose jig from Fine Woodworking, the basic piece is a saddle to go over your fence, with a number of threaded inserts sunk into the face. You can then create a variety of jigs on plates that screw onto the saddle face, or attach stops/clamps/whatchamacallits directly to the saddle. I thought it was a really neat idea with a huge amount of potential.

I thought it would be better to make a sled with all those accessories and attachments. I don’t see how the fence one would work very well for making boxes.

A sled version sounds like a good idea, one all-purpose sled that can be customized instead of several specialized ones would be good for a small shop like mine where storage space is at a premium. Especially as I almost have to use sleds to get clean cuts since my little benchtop saw is almost impossible to make zero-clearance inserts for :(
