Topic tags/keywords: box joint jig table saw blade

I’d like to start making box joints. I am without a router table at this time so I have to use a table saw. I believe this will necessitate the purchase of a new blade that can create flat bottomed kerfs. I don’t want to spend a ton of money, so I’d like some suggestions as to a good “value” choice.

Thanks to all!

Look up the William Ng box joint jig on YouTube. It works great.

There are several 24T rip blades that have a flat top grind (FTG) that will work. Best bang for the buck in a full kerf blade is likely the Delta 35-611

Otherwise, you may need to look into a box joint cutter set, or use an FTG chipper from a dado set.
