This instructable is for a box joint jig, which is necessary for this particular carpentry technique. I didn't have a companion with me to video record the first use of the jig, but I took plenty of photos here. If you're building a jig, it's assumed that you already familiar with the above tools and parts. An interesting point that the box joint is stronger than the dovetail joint, and does not require the custom dovetail jig.


Finger joints are perfect for box joinery, case construction without dovetails, shop furniture, and more. I needed this tool so I could create a box joint (also sometimes called a finger joint) using the dado stack bit on the sawstop table saw.
See how to make and use Theisen’s jig in the animation below then follow these links for written instructions and a plan with dimensions. The jig is super easy to make (some can be highly-engineered like this one by Matthias Wandel) and cuts one size of fingers.
