A simple box spline jig for a Craftsman Professional Table Saw/Router Table. The jig is long enough to be able to take advantage of both the saw and the router table. I have several other designs I’m going to be building in spline jigs that are capable of other kinds of splines…this is the first in a series…I had to have something quick and this will work. Other types could have worked as well…but for large boxes this might be better. With the router portion of the table saw I have the capability to produce a 3/4 inch spline.

This is a nice jig, Barry. And building it large enough to fit both the saw and the router was a good idea that adds to the jig’s versatility. On jigs like this I like using the miter slots as guides rather than simply following the fence. To me it makes the jig more stable to take this approach.

Nice post.

I have that same saw. Nice job. I guess you flipped the router table insert to the left side of the blade? I never would have thought to do that. I can’t wait to see what else you come up with.
