I think I may have just done it! The idea is so simple that I'm sure I'm not the first person to come up with this design, however I haven't seen anything quite like it online. If you'd like to try making this jig for yourself, you're welcome to the plans I drew up. As a thanks, please consider sharing the video and becoming a subscriber!

This was a fun one! It's super satisfying to see an idea come to fruition and work as you had hoped. To be honest, I didn't think it was going to work as well as it does! I really like how you hardly need any hardware to assemble the jig, basically just 2 bolts and nuts for the tightening knobs, and everything else can just be scrap wood that's lying around. But one of the best things about this jig is the ability for lateral cleanups (explained in the video) which allows for perfect-fitting joints. If you spot a way it could be improved upon, don't hesitate to drop it in a comment below. Thanks for watching!

Excellent job. Think I'll build one myself. But here's a thought: Why nor mount a small mirror at an angle on the back fence, enabling you to see the kerf alignment when making small adjustments, so you don't have to bend over. Not sure it will work, but give it a try.
Martin van Zyl (1 month ago)
+giantiri And then I got it backwards!!!
giantiri (1 month ago)
+Martin van Zyl They say ""objects in (the) mirror are closer than they appear" , (look at google) but ,yes, you are right, they reduce the image... sorry for mistake !!! 👍
Martin van Zyl (1 month ago)
+giantiri Sorry, no, rearview mirrors usually reduce an image. They often say "Trafic appears further away than what it appears".
giantiri (1 month ago)
Or just use a rear view mirror from a car... they often magnify the view...😀
Martin van Zyl (1 month ago)
+Fisher's Shop You may just find that the mirror image is too small, so you squint and still have to lean over a bit to see clearly. If that is a problem, try making a slightly convex mirror by slightly bending a piece of clear acrylic to a convex shape and spraying it with mirror spray paint like the stuff from Rustoleum. Youtube has a few videos on making mirrors.

Dennis Fahlstrom (1 month ago)
Drew, I enjoy your projects and recently subscribed. I have to say that hogging out these notches seems far more labor intensive than many other box joint jigs I’ve seen. The simplest and easiest one ever was one from Norm Abram about 20 years ago on The New Yankee Workshop. It took about 10 minutes to build and works great using a set of stacked dado blades to make the notches. It even cuts the corresponding pieces simultaneously.
Kevin Georgiades (23 days ago)
+Fisher's Shop in curious too! Please post the update. Planning to build this soon.
Kevin Orr (1 month ago)
+Fisher's Shop I would like to see your update. I am just about to make this jig...Now, I'll wait.
Fisher's Shop (1 month ago)
Of course using a dado stack would be easier but the whole point of this jig is to be able to use it with just a single blade (which most people only have). Since the creation of this video, I've devised an even easier way to accomplish the same task. Might be worth shooting another video in the future.

Key, could be a roll pin the size of your saw blade, but you can snap on other size rings or pipe for dado stacks , I'd use high density plastic for the jig timplates or you could just use porter cable style dovetail jig timplates, you could change the pin size for different size joints and blade sizes. I'd also build in a square fence to the other side so your part can be out of square and still cut on the same plane as the upright square. Also you can stack 4-5-6 parts at once and clamp them for fast production.
bobbg (3 months ago)
So how's that work with a stacked dado blade? A lot less cuts?
Love Hacks (4 months ago)
Your first joint was offset by 1/8 kerf I’m guessing. Solution? Have you had any issues with popping you key off Not much material there or glue surface?
netacadman (4 months ago)
The obvious question is why you're not using the router table to make the box joints ....

You just made a box joiner jig on your router, to make a box jig for your table saw ??? using your router you are not limited by the thickness of your of a saw blade. why not make some plans up for router based jigs.
Fisher's Shop (5 months ago)
This was covered. Routers aren't good for box joints because of the tendency to break off the fingers when using hardwoods. Table saws are ideal to use.
Philippe55 (5 months ago)
I have a dumb question. Why not just cut the finger joints on the router instead of the table saw?
Philippe55 (5 months ago)
Thank you
Fisher's Shop (5 months ago)
The hardwood fingers are very prone to snapping off on the router table (as seen in the outtakes).

I cant find saw blades that cut a 90 degree slot profile, like at 8 :40 in the video. All seem to be the standard offset teeth type. Where do you get them? And exactly what are they called?
Fisher's Shop (6 months ago)
I buy my blades online. Search for ones that say "flat tooth". Some might be ABT (alternating beveled tooth) but also include what's called a FRT (flat-top raking tooth) which would give you the same effect.

Frustrating that all woodworking videos on YoutTube people have all of these awesome tools that the average person doesn't have. I want to see things done with cheap tools and sweat.

A router table is one of the basics for any woodworker. You can make your own with a scrap of plywood. Nothing needs to be fancy... just functional.

Don't even have a router table and most people wouldn't.

Alien Physics (6 months ago)
thanks for the plans ...... as I was viewing the plans I thought a nice feature would be to glue some Plastic Mirror Reflective Film on the facing rise at the front of the jig ( or is it back ? ) so you can look into the mirror and see the cuts being made .... practical ? probably not, but I personally like to see whats going on. Also I noticed you might be able to add different size notches to the "tops" of each template as well .... just turn it over for another size .... . GREAT PROJECT ! !

Mark McRostie (7 months ago)
I have made the jig with the help of your plans, but cutting the templates is frustrating as they keep breaking off. I have used both hard and soft wood, any tips you can give would be much appreciated. Your video was so easy to follow, keep them coming.
Mark McRostie (7 months ago)
Thanks I will give 5mm MDF a go, as I have used soft wood already,
Fisher's Shop (7 months ago)
As you may have seen in the outtakes, I had some similar trouble with exactly that. The only tips I can offer is to use a real soft wood like particle board or maybe even MDF, make sure your router bit is sharp, and to go real real slow.
Allan Browne (7 months ago)
Great template. But at 10:30 in the video, when you joined the two together, they didn't line up, how did you get around this? Obviously you found a way when you showed the completed joins. I am new to woodworking. When doing these joints, is the initial lineup of the pieces the width of the wood, or the width of the cuts to be made, like at time 9:35?
Fisher's Shop (7 months ago)
I just test-fitted the pieces with one of them upside down. That's all. You control that when you clamp them into the jig. You simply clamp one of them against the other offset by the width of the key based on the template that you're using. Hope that makes sense.
Jose Rodriguez (7 months ago)
Great video I’m a new subscriber. Thanks
Bill Hodges (7 months ago)
Have built the basic jig and am at the point of making the templates and the key. A bit of uncertainty -- at 9:05 the video shows locating the key with the 1/8" template, then gluing it to the back fence with the glue line only the edge of the key. Is this sufficient glue surface or should there be a slot cut go give better support? It appears that the saw fence could be used as a guide for cutting a slot here?
Fisher's Shop (7 months ago)
Hey Bill. Yes, I've built a couple of these jigs and I've done it both ways. Adding a slot for extra support helps for sure, but since the key isn't going to see a lot of abuse, just gluing it on the face has proven to be sufficient for me so far.
Bill Hodges (7 months ago)
I note that, on two other videos, the fingers should ideally be 0.006 narrower than the slots. Would a key which is 0.006 less than the saw kerf accomplish this?
Fisher's Shop (7 months ago)
The width of the key determines the width of both the fingers and the slots. So by making the key narrower, your fingers will get smaller but the slots will get bigger. If the key is wider than the kerf, the fingers will be bigger but the slots will be smaller. If you want a uniform size, you'll have to make the change with the template... not with the key.
Thomas Moersch (7 months ago)
Thanks for the video and for sharing your design. I have watched pretty much every kind of shop built finger joint jig construction video and I enjoyed every one of them. However this is the first one that I feel I cal actually build even if I don't have a jointer. I found most of the other construction methods too complex and involved. Have you considered making templates out of aluminum or plastic?
Fisher's Shop (7 months ago)
You're welcome, Tom. Thanks for watching! If I had a CNC I definitely would have made the templates that way and used material like plastic or aluminum. But since I don't, I had to make do with what I had on hand.
Jeremy Specce (7 months ago)
So I guess the Key has to be the size of the blade kerf, whatever that is. To extrapolate, if i wanted to do HUGE box joints with a 3/4" dado stack i could make a 3/4 key and like a 2" template. I like how this jig will have fixed distance fingers (or variable, if you wanted to make a weird template, maybe) The vast majority of jigs reference the previous finger for the spacing, so any error gets factored in from that finger onward to all the rest. This one all the joints you make will be based on the same template so any two pieces should fit together perfectly as long as they are oriented properly. ( I think that makes sense) Subscribed!
Fisher's Shop (7 months ago)
Right on. Never thought of making another one that will work with a dado stack. Neat idea!
VideoNOLA (7 months ago)
What if the templates were made out of multiple "keys" lined up side-by-side (and held straight by a long clamp), such that they could be slid up/open and down/closed... this would permit you to "flip" the template over and make a matching series of cuts on piece B to fit the ones on piece A. Test it out using some dominoes, for example. If they were slid A={down, down, up, up, up, down, down, up, up, up, down, down}, then the flipped version for piece B={up, up, down, down, down, up, up, down, down, down, up, up}, and the two pieces should mesh perfectly. This gives you even further customization options and "looks" to your work! Think it can be done?
Fisher's Shop (7 months ago)
Believe it or not, I thought of that and something very similar was one of the first experiments I did in this project. No matter how careful I was in cutting the keys consistently, there was always a variation that screwed things up. But I was trying to make them out of wood so maybe natural expansion played a role here. Perhaps if you actually used plastic dominoes like you suggested it would have worked better. Great idea.
Genial estupendo gracias

Jeff Johnson (8 months ago)
Very nice. I suppose this would work on a router table as well?
Fisher's Shop (8 months ago)
Probably not that well actually. Routers tend to snap off the fingers of hardwood. That’s why I had to make my templates from softer woods.
Steve Hayes (8 months ago)
Great video - thank you for sharing it. I have a question... Could a person just use the router jig that you made as a box joint jig? What's the advantage of use the table saw? Thank you!
Fisher's Shop (8 months ago)
The router snaps off the fingers if the wood is hardwood. You'll see what I mean in the outtakes of the video at the end. Table saw doesn't do that. Thanks for watching!

Very cool. Great concept and video. Thanks for sharing..... Fun outtakes. I start with Sketchup for every project.

Well Sir, over here,  you are the Woodworker. Over the years in construction, I have found that there is always someone out there who's idea has a different solution to a problem. When that person has a, K.I.S.S. solution to a problem, they are the genius for the moment.  I'm a Tinsmith by trade, So, I understand many of the woodworker's ideas. Your jig is quick, solves my problem, and it is easy to build.  Keep up the great work, excellent ideas, and funny out takes. A good laugh, is good medicine.

Jan Simonsen (9 months ago)
This looks great, and I’m assuming that by using the lateral motion to clean up, you don’t need a flat tooth saw blade.
Fisher's Shop (9 months ago)
Hmm, there's some blades that don't have all flat tops but they have what's called a raking tooth which is flat which essentially "cleans up" the cut from that the ABT (alternating beveled tooth) leaves behind.
Jan Simonsen (9 months ago)
Fisher's Shop That's something I'm finding difficult to buy in the UK.
Fisher's Shop (9 months ago)
You would still need a flat tooth to get precise corners within each notch.
Kevin Blanc (9 months ago)
Looks really great. How has the walnut index key held up? It didn't seem like there was much glue surface area (unless something just didn't register with me when I watched.) Love the simplicity.
Fisher's Shop (9 months ago)
It's worked out just fine for me so far. Granted, I don't use this jig everyday. Some have suggested that you can cut a shallow kerf in the back and glue the key into that. That would definitely hold it better. And the kerf could be pretty much anywhere, doesn't have to be centered.

Art M (10 months ago)
Interesting! I am going to make one. The only thing I am concerned with is the exposed saw blade on the back side after you have made the cut. I have seen other plans on Utube where they add a block on the backside to cover the exposed blade and place blocks in the saw table tracks to limit the amount of forward travel.
Fisher's Shop (10 months ago)
Yup, you could absolutely add a safety block back there. Just glue one on! No problem.
