the sky is the limit on the degree of complexity when designing a jig.  But the principles are the same.  Any jig you choose must keep that stock tight and vertical for a good cut across the dado.  That is the only way to have a tight box joint each and every time.

BTW.  That Lynn Jig looks good.  I might have to look into building it myself.  It appears possible to cut the joint on multiple pieces of stock.  Very Cool!
