These are some of the jigs and such I made to get going on my box project.

A zero clearance plate and a push-stick that my son said looked like a shark, so…..

A miter sled made from scraps and a MDF shelf for the base

A jig for cutting the splines, a Doug Stowe design off of his “Basic Box Making” DVD
I also canabalized a pine shelf for it


I thought I made a cross cutting sled, but it must be in the mess of my garage.
Anyways, thanks for looking:)

Yep, they were made before and/or during the box project…..which is still not fully finished yet btw.
Now I want to make a wooden top for my foldaway workmate and get going on lopping up the oak.
I am supposed to be making some picture frames, but need some more study on them before diving in. Want to do a hockey stick frame for my boy.
Can I just have one more weekend day????
