There has been a lot of talk about Box Joints lately…
Several years ago, I studied Box Joints quite a bit…
I saw Norm make his quick jig for the table saw… and make perfect Box Joints on his 1st try… Amazing!
I saw Lynn’s jig demonstrated and really thought that was the best way to go… I almost made that jig!
Then, on The Router Workshop TV Show, I saw a different little jig being used… they used it all the time to make their box joints… one day their jigs were on Sale. Oak Park made them... Called them Spacer fences or something like that. I bought all three of them… 1/4”, 3/8”, and 1/2” jigs.
I just got word that Bob, the older of Bob & Rick, has retired and is phasing out all of the inventory and has stopped making any more. The only jig left is the 1/4” jig… Too bad to see them go… So, if you want one… act fast while you can… when they’re gone, it’s over.
To me, for simple Box Joints, this is the best way to go…
I guess Stumpy didn’t like some of my comments about his box joint jig / thread…
