Default Box/finger joints on router

I'm fairly new and built a sled for my Ryobi cheapo router table. I'm not quite sure how to start making slots or pins using an index on the sliding jig.

Can someone recommend a router jig for making box joints similar to the Leigh Super 18, but less expensive?

I want to build cabinets for guitar amplifiers and speakers. I don't need a lot of flexibility. The finger joints will be 1/2" and the stock will be up to 16" wide.

I don't want to use a table saw because the stock may be up to 3' tall.

Jim, The Oak Park box joint jigs are my choice. You will see them in many posts on this site. Here is a link to the US catalog page which includes a video showing how to use them: Oak Park Enterprises Ltd.: Catalogue
