Box Joint Jig
« on: January 01, 2008, 03:27:06 PM »
I have used a router jig to make hives. Too time consuming.
I have used the traditional miter gage mounted box joint jig. Works ok, but requires setting up each time you start a batch.
This is the jig I use now. No setup. Just slap it into the slots and start cutting box joints:

nice jig. i've been cutting rabbits with the router table into the long sides and attaching the short sides there. i have to build some mediums and may try your jig. can you stack cut them (more than one board at a time)?

I cut four at a time. You can do a box at a time by placing two against the stop, then offset the other two using the gage block. I find it more productive to just cut four at a time.
