Locking Rabbet Jig
Take a weekend to build this jig and you’ll be rewarded with easy-to-cut drawer joints.
We use locking rabbet joints quite often when building drawers. But setting up to cut a tight-fitting joint can be a tedious, frustrating process. The location and size of the dadoes and tongues have to be perfect. This jig eliminates the guesswork and allows you to cut a snug joint in a snap. Using a pair of flip-up stops and a tall, adjustable fence, the jig lets you make all the cuts with one setup. A few test cuts are all you need before you’re ready to cut all the workpieces in “production mode.” Just a few easy steps and you’re done. We include specifics on using the jig to cut four variations of the joints.
