Spline Jig


I posted this jig on another woodworking site and it has been very popular. So thought I’d share it here as well.
I had been using a jig I cobbled together and I couldn’t have gotten rid of it soon enough. This is a pleasure to use.

I got inspiration to build this from these two guys from Lumberjocks.com.

Constructed of 3/4” MDF, 1/4” MDF, 3/4” plywood and 4/4 poplar scraps. The construction is pretty typical of most sleds. I did however incorporate removable and replaceable zero clearance inserts made from 1/4” MDF. The “T” tracks and accessories are from Rockler Woodworking. I’ve been using this jig for quite sometime and one thing I can think of to further add to it’s functionality is a measurement tape. So at some point I will add an adhesive measuring tape so I can dial in on exact measurements and repeat settings.

Very nice jig. Much nicer than my fence rider. Love all the features. This is going in the upgrade list for sure!

Thanks David. I appreciate the compliment
