Decorative corner splines sure make an ordinary box look great. Butthey can be a bit dicey to cut on a tablesaw. Let your plate joinercome to the rescue. A simple jig holds the box and the joiner so youcan cut slots quickly with minimal setup hassles.

Decorative corner splines sure make an ordinary box look great. Butthey can be a bit dicey to cut on a tablesaw. Let your plate joinercome to the rescue. A simple jig holds the box and the joiner so youcan cut slots quickly with minimal setup hassles. The jig is nothingmore than a piece of scrap plywood with two wood strips set at 90degrees to each other. A cradle fits around the plate joiner base andkeeps it from rocking on the box corner. The cradle is indexed to thejig with a couple dowels. Use spacer blocks to adjust the splinespacing. Plunge the joiner into the wood slowly to prevent tear-outwhere the blade exits the wood. With this box, you only need one spacerblock; just flip the box over to cut the upper slot.
