Good day

If you remember, I made a roller sled on my new router table.

To test it, I made this box…if that was a pleasure…and fast…

I can use a box joint jig. I’m going to have to spend some time studying this one.

Good job Niki. Box joints are something we all want to do, but they usually involve so much work. Looks like you find a way around that.

Thank you so much for your kind comments

The jig has to be improved in some areas like stops, higher fence and integral clamps but the most important is that it’s working accurately and fast…It took me 25~30 minutes including the set-up and taking pictures but if you make a few boxes with one set-up, the average time will be reduced.

I’m working now on Mortising jig that is rolling on the router table, today, I made the first test and I was so excited from the results that I called my wife to see it…..”ok, nice, so what, for what you did it”....there was nothing in her voice to indicate that I’m going to get a new tool or something like that…oh well…
