    Corner Spline Jig

    The jewelry boxes I made

    needed to have something to set off the corners so I thought I'd try my hand at corner splines, but first I needed a accurate and safe way to cut these using my crosscut sled.

    Following are some pics of the pieces I needed and making it work.

    I started off with 2 triangular pieces of 3/4 ply and a rectangular piece of 3/8"

    I glued it up and nailed it together aligning it with my crosscut sled.

    Next I made some lines on the sled to align me up for a left and a right cut.

    Set the blade to a height to not cut through the inside of the box, and made my cuts on the right side first, flipped the box and made my cuts on the left side.

    I cut the spline material simply by setting up the fence to the correct width and run it through.

    Jig is simple, cheap, and works.

    Very cool, and, especially important for me, SIMPLE!

    Looks good. I also seen in one of the magazines where they used a biscuit joiner to make the slots.
