Default finger joints by the thousands

Hell my first post here is a big onr to me and I am hopeing to find the right answer I am planning on building some boxes and they need to have fingers joints on the long side (10.5 in.) and i am wondering the best way to does this I do have acess to a laser engraver/cutter but i do not like the burnt edge. what about a jig out of acrylic and a guide bushing will it work?

Hi Craig.

If the joints are 10.5", how long are the box sides.

I think you need an industrial machine for "thousands" of joints.

If you have a lot of them to do you should look at a good quality dovetail/finger joint jig. I've thought about ganging circular saw blades with spacers onto a shaft so that every notch could be cut at once but I'm not sure a 5/8" shaft would be stiff or strong enough and blades with larger diameter holes are prohibitively expensive.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Sorry, Craig.

Your post seems to have been lost on translation...

There is a clearer picture emerging of what you are after.

it would be best if you followed this post on your second post....
