Hi Joe, do you have a video of how you added the modifications (T-track and other features). Thank you very much.

shop notes #62 vol 11? Thought it looked familiar. Just bought a new table saw and first thing to make is this box joint jig! Thanks for the vid.
Made one of these with both the T-track and the sawdust relief modifications you suggested, also added about 5 inches to the front shelf, which allows me to clamp and cut all 4 boards (2 offset by one pin width) at once, like those screw advance sliders. Works quite well. Btw, after running around from one hardware store to another to find the right size screw knobs, T-nuts, threaded rods, etc. (ended up using 32 tpi screws), the $15.00 for the set would have been a bargain ;-).
what blade do you use to cut such a big portion of the wood?
Stacked dado blades.
like it !! well done..
Now that is a box joint jig.
thank you brother
thanks a lot buddie .......great for sharing with us
Just watched your video and I really like the additions you made. I have bought the hardware kit and will add your idea to mine. I am glad I watched.
Same set here, also the best accessory for box joints are the new Rockler Clamp Cauls .
Little pricey but WOW do they work.
Joe what dado set do you have.I just built the jig and I am still playing with it.I have a freud sd206.
Excellent jig. I just ordered the plans and hardware from the site you mentioned at the end. They owe you a commission!!! :)
Joe the only thing about this box joint jig is you are cutting 1 pc @ a time instead of doing 4 pcs at once.
This is the jig Incra looked at when they built the IBOX jig from what i can tell
Freud makes a excellant blade for doing box joints that will cut 1/4" & 3/8"
if you extend the ledge from being small to 3" you can cut all 4 pcs at once in 3/4" stock, you will need to change out the L brackets which are 3/4" X 4" to 3/4" X 8"

delete the spaces

Amazon sells a box joint blade set by Olsun that has flat-ground teeth. You'll spend about $70, but get excellent results.
@qstendious I made this jig according to the plans and am able to adjust the widths of the fingers and the spaces to the thousandth of an inch. So, as long as you can push your frame across the saw, you should be able to box joints on this for the widths you require.
this is a good jig & good video but mathias wandell made a jig that pretty much blows away every other dovetail jig ever made.
Great video...I purchased the plans and made my own jig. Works great. Thanks
I recently made this box joint jig and cut finger joints for 23 boxes. It works really well with a quality dado blade set installed in your table saw. I used my Frued super dado blade set and it produced beautifully tight joints. I like this jig because it's accurate and flexible. Most other jigs are limited to only a few set thicknesses of wood. This one you can adjust to accommodate whatever thickness of wood you mill it to. Taller stock tends to slip upwards in this jig so be sure to clamp .
@HalfCockedMD there are three types of table saw blades one rip, crosscut, and combination. If you use the combination they have bevels, but they also have a third tooth that bottoms out the Kerf.
i didnt realise you vere udings a dado blade
To joelupah::::Wow ! -That's the most wonderful,faster and simple joint jig machine I have seen until now, man.THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!
The idea is great but the small fee at the Woodsmith Store is $15.95. That includes the hardware but still that seems steep, especially if you've got a lot of hardware kickin around already.
