Finger joints on Router table
I know this is old hat and pretty simple to most of you but I am pretty proud of myself. Made the jig as well. Now able to make finger joints on the router table
Oh boy, youre opening a can of worms here (lol).
Good to see youre achieving results, but to be completely technical, thats a box joint.
A finger joint is the tapered edge joints used to make larger boards out of small pieces.
Let the arguments begin......
Soooo, where's the jig pics? ;
It's always a great feeling to tuck a new skill into the set, eh?
Nice. I'd like to see the jig myself. I have a commercial jig for this purpose, but I'm impressed when anyone makes a jig for box joints because it requires some skilled and careful work to make one correctly.
The tapered finger is either called just that or it`s called a splice joint because its only function that I`ve ever seen is to splice two boards together. Both are correctly called a finger joint. It does lead to confusion as one member recently posted that he had purchased a finger joint bit thinking he could make boxes with it only to find out it was only good for splicing.
LOL! Told ya!
remember we had a BIG thread on this a while ago.
Just because its in a book dont mean its right.
The box joint has square ends, the finger joint has tapered ends.
But to get back to the original post,
Don made a good job of making his own jig. I cheat and use the trend box joint cutter, which bizarrley, is called a comb joint cutter ????
I will take a pic of the jig itself in a little bit and post it in the Jigs and fixtures section. Wife is on 5 days holidays starting tomorrow which means little or no shop time for yours truly
Party at Don's house!! :)
