Default Corner splined joint jig

I was thinking about getting a commercial jig, but none I found looked to be a quality product. I decided to just make my own. It turned out very well and I couldnít be happier on its performance. Am I the only one that gets geeked out over shop built jigs?img_0724.jpgimg_0726.jpg

NICE!

Shop jigs? Fun to make? Nice to have for the future?

Yup - I will spend many hrs getting my jigs in shape to make a 2 minute slice!

I do admire those that work up an inventory for craft shows - That has no interest for me.

So, I will take 2-4 weeks to ponder a new design, then another 2-4 months to refine it (If my attention span doesn't overtake the process). I enjoy the challenge.

Have FUN!, Oh...Nice job.

Ken, Your spline jig is very nicely done and well thought out! It should last decades!

Designing and building jigs is one of my favorite parts of making things. I even have some jigs I don't remember what I made them for!

It seems lately that all I build is jigs!
I just love that stuff.

On this, well done sir. Did you draw up plans, or just jump in and "git'r'done"?
Looks great, don't forget to post a pic of a joint you made with it!
(we love pictures!)

There is nothing finer than building a tool from scratch, and using that tool to build something else.

Itís used to add splines to a mitered joint. Hereís a picture of my router bit box that I made awhile ago, before I made the jig. img_0719.jpg

I looked online for a basic idea. Iím a cad operator so of course I had to draw up plans. The only thing I want to do to it yet is add some kind of gripping material to the inside of the clamps.
