Build a Router Table Box-Joint Jig
Detailed photos and a downloadable plan guide you step by step through the process of creating this adjustable jig
Box joints, also known as finger joints, are a decorative and sturdy method for joining drawers, boxes, and carcases. The joint consists of interlocking fingers and sockets, which are easily cut with power tools.
Many woodworkers cut box joints with a dado blade on the tablesaw. But that’s not the only option. German woodworker Guido Henn designed a shopmade jig to cut variably sized box joints on the router table.
