Box joints, also called finger joints, are a great way to join corners on a box. Not only do they add a significant amount of strength, they also look great. Especially when the box joint is made from contrasting materials. The table saw, equipped with a dado head, provides a great way to make box joints, provided you have a jig. WWGOA’s box joint jig video shows a simple shop-made box joint jig is the perfect solution to your box joint needs.

The plans for this jig can be found here.

      The pin should be made of hardwood, and should be 1/4″ wide (or whatever is the size of your dado) x 1-3/8″ long. It should be the height of your dado slot minus 1/16″.

    Just a suggestion, how about making the links in the articles a little more obvious. I’m color blind and had to mouse over the article looking for my pointer to change.

    Color seems like an obvious indicator but not for everyone.

    This tells how to adjust the jig but nothing about how to use it. I need to know how it’s used starting with the blanks.
