Adjustable Box Joint Jig
Perfect box joints every time? With this fully adjustable table saw jig, now it’s possible.
Accuracy — that’s the key to success for just about any jig, but particularly for a box joint jig. So the challenge was to come up with a design that eliminated as many variables as possible that could reduce accuracy. The solution was to “build in” the accuracy right from the start. Take the runner system, for example. Most box joint jigs are simply attached to a miter gauge. And if there’s any slop in your miter gauge bar, it can throw off the accuracy of the jig. But instead of using a miter gauge, this jig fits directly into the miter gauge slots of your table saw. The sides of the jig serve as runners. And since the jig travels in both slots, there isn’t any chance of racking.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
