Box joints are so easy to make it’s no wonder they’re used on so many projects. In ShopNotes No. 98, we used them to build a Curved-Lid Toolbox. As a part of that issue, there was a great little three page article called Better Box Joints. All that’s need to make box joints are a table saw and an auxiliary miter gauge fence with an index key. The secret is in the spacing relationship between the blade, the width of the key and the distance between the two.
Bryan Nelson will demonstrate this simple jig this week during his seminar at the Woodsmith Store.
