Title: Crosscut Sled With Box-Joint Jig
Materials: Birch plywood, beech, screws.

Pictures









The jig was designed to cut 3mm slots, 3mm apart for forming boxwood joints in an ash bathroom cabinet. The sled is a woodworking standard with the two clamps holding the detachable jig. difficult to see in the pictures, there is a 3mm pin 3mm to the right of the saw cut providing the index.

I use something similar myself but with a cover for the exposed blade both infront of and behind the vertical fence. One should also ensure that the spacing is equal to the saw kerf and that it has a zero degree top bevel, I keep one just for this purpose & keying mitres.

Hi Dennis

Good to meet you today.

I assume that you removed the guards for photographic purposes. :roll:

Good luck,
Neil

PS How is the foal?

NIce to meet so many on Sunday :D

The guard would have covered the 'working bits' making the photograph a picture of a guard, so it was removed to clarify the details :roll:

The foal is a dark grey colt Shetland, and not quite got the hang of it's legs yet, but beautiful Neil. There was a brief problem on Sunday teaching it to feed (where the taps are), but it's got the idea now 8-[
