Default Box joint jig for a router table

Does anyone have any good plans for a Finger Joint jig for use on a router jig?

Steve, woodworking magazines offer plans for box joint jigs but the best jig available by far is the one from Oak Park. By using a different push block it is quick and easy to make angled and even compound angled box joints. Wood glides over the polyeurethane jig. At a price of $50 for the three jig set it can't be beat. You can also cut sliding dovetails with uniform spacing for table supports. Give it a look.

Steve, the first shot is of a jig that I made and used for many years, it is reversible for 1/4" and 1/2" joints. I haven't however used it since I received an OakPark spacer jig as a prize on this forum, donated very kindly by senior member Bob Noles who regrettably we rarely see these days because of poor health. I was so impressed by it that I purchased the other two available sizes. I've added a link showing my first test of the spacer jig, I inadvertently called it finger jig which it isn't of course.
The second shot shows an alternative method for routing box joints for small boxes.
