Default box joint jig to build yourself

Hi I'm new to this forum and also to routing. I'm looking for an easy to build jig to make simple box joint. Nothing fancy, but simple to make. Any hints to pictures/sketchup drawings would be nice.

I think the easiest jig to make is the Oak Park style spacer jig.


I made a very basic version quickly and it didn't take long to get good results with it.

This is my first reply/post in this site. I was looking at the Oak Park spacer and thought excellent, would love that. However after emailing them I got no reply and tend to think they dont post down here to australia. Looking at it further I thought that would be rather simple to make. May I ask, does it work ok,...and does it work for dovetail joints as well. Would you think it would be ok to fit on top of a triton router table,................Regards, Paul

Hi Pauls

OP will not ship to AU but MLCS will, see video at the bottom of the web page or Youtube.

It will show how to use the jig on your router table..
It's true you can make your own but it will not be the same, I did make my own and it did work OK BUT the one they make with the CNC machine is the best.
They can put dovetails in place but not on the ends of stock..
for a dovetail joint.

HI Paul,

Welcome to the forum.

I am surprised you got no reply from Oak Park. I have had nothing but great service from them.

You are right. They do not post to Australia.

I have their box joint (spacer fence) jigs and reckon they are great.

Which part of this great southern land do you come from?
