Episode: 44 – Box Joint – Finger Joint Jig One hour Build ONLINE CLASS
This project uses the following project;
Video – Extreme Crosscut Sled – Miter/Dado With removable zero clearance inserts:
I have a few projects coming up that will use finger joints, and I have a few jigs laying around, but I thought I would show exactly how easy it is to build one.
This jig took about an hour to film and build. Including the time to dial it in and cut a sample box. Anybody can make one.
It works best if you have a crosscut sled. Then the build only takes a small scrap of plywood, and a short small piece of hardwood. This jig is essentially built for free, with workshop scraps.
¾” plywood. 3” wide x 20” long
A few pieces of hardwood. (I used a maple scrap). 5/8” tall x 3/8” thick x 6” long.
(Cut one about a hair narrower than 3/8’, and one right at 3/8”, and one more at a hair bigger than 3/8”)
And a tiny bit of glue.
I have seen many box joint jigs on YouTube. Some are very complex. Some don’t work at all. Some achieve the same thing, but are too hard to make or adjust. There is one that I have seen that I love! That is the one by William Ng. He is an amazing woodworker. And this one uses a lot of his ideas. Please check out his channel and subscribe. Here is a link. ~THANKS WILLIAM!
Things I used in today’s build:
Japanese Dozuki saw
Titebond III Glue
