Hello guys, I hope I can explain what I need to make and get some help. I have a long miter joint that I would like to place some splines on the outside face. I know I can make a base for my biscut jointer to cut the slots but I would also like for them to be on an 45 degree angle so I need to make something to hold the jointer on that angle. Has anyone done this or could you give me some pointers on how to do this.

Its the biscuit jointer and to make the jig for it to rest on the corner I must take the fence off or maybe not ,you know your sarcasm just may have helped.

Did you find your answer? Most biscuit cutters do have an adjustable fence for cutting biscuits in a miter joint.

That’s were I have not been able to explain what I need. It is not along the miter joint, but on top of the joint after the joint has been glued together.

Are you talking about exposed splines like on the corner of boxes?

If you have a table saw you could just tilt the blade 45 and cut it on a sled with a V channel

kkickback that is perfect thanks for the link. You have saved the day. Redshirt it would be hard to use the table saw, the piece I’m working on is 54” long. Thanks for all the help guys.

kkickback, thanks X2 for the link, I think I need to build me one of those. It’d take much less space than the table saw type sline jig.

Great idea, I have an old Ryobi biscuit joiner, setting gathering dust, this would be a great use for as the fence sucks. It could easily be fixed in place at 90 degree and this aux fence added to it permantly….thanks for the idea!

Here’s mine, with a test piece. The Jig is held on a Power Fist biscuit cutter. Burr oak backed with ply.
