On one of the very few shows PBS has shown here in Arkansas, Bob and Rick used a spline jig and a slot cutter when they made the hexagon stool. Is there any way to get plans for this jig?
Thanks, Boxer

Thanks for the reply. I do want to clarify that this is a spline jig they used to connect the legs together, and not a jig for mitered corners. I will look into the book, though.

check this site out it has lot's of good information on about every type of joint scroll down the page and the spline joint is shown del schisler http://www.sawdustmaking.com/About Joints/about_joints.htm
Spline Joint

This is a thin strip glued into grooves cut into the pieces being joined, these are used to fasten panels together and to fasten the mitered corners of picture frames. They are made with a table saw and dado blade or with a router and straight bit.

Picture Frame Spline Jig




Splines add strength to a miter joint, a simple jig can be made for use on a table saw or router table. The glued corner is clamped into the jig, the jig is run along the fence on your table saw or router table, the short dowel is used as a handle to keep the jig tight to the fence. Insert the spline, trim and sand even with frame when glue has set.

The slot is made so you can replace the sub base with other types, like a 45deg.,15deg.,etc. just remove the wings nuts and the 1/4-20 x 2" carr. bolts and put the new one in place.
Note**I grind the head down on the carr.bolt to 3/8" dia. and 3/16" high and run two slots one for the head and one for the screw, this way I full control of the sub.base.
This can be done quick and easy with a drill and a grinder.
Note **when you cut the 22 1/2 deg. put the cut off back on (glue it in place) then cut to the right size this will help support the part when you run the slot.
