How-To Videos & Instruction
Box joints, also known as finger joints, are a quick and effective method of making drawer boxes, cabinetry and storage boxes. The visually striking symmetrical design of box joints is a great alternative to traditional dovetail joinery. The RTJ400’s precision machining and unique Leigh guide bushing provide precise adjustment for absolutely perfect fit. Although the box joint is not mechanically interlocking like a dovetail, the joint is amazingly strong due to the large number of glue surfaces. Four sizes of box joints, from a tiny 3/32″, 3/16″, 3/8″ and the large 3/4″ are easily made using the RTJ template.
