It's make-a-jig week


Fresh on the heels of my mitre sled comes this spline jig for box corners.

Me too nice design I might have to steel it.


Good one Brian.

Nice! I love sleds, jigs and fixtures; almost as much as actual projects. :-)

This week, I’ve made my 1/4" router table finger/box joint jig, and today, I knocked out a Dovetail Keyed Miter joint jig, also for the router table. Surprisingly, my router table, built in the mid 90’s, is still going strong. Although it looks worse for the wear. Kinda like me. :-)

Boxes and frames coming up?

Well done.

Actually it was more about the last box, which my 10 month old boy his hands on. I struggled with the repair, which included 2 splines on each corner. I thought there has to be a better way. But yes, I do want to make some picture frames and more boxes, including an amp cabinet with a buddy of mine.
