Rockler has all kinds of jigs and helpers to make your joinery a success.
- How about Box joints? – Make strong, tight-fitting box joints on your router table with Rockler’s Router Table Box Joint Jig. This jig uses precision-machined solid brass indexing keys to ensure uniform finger spacing and an airtight fit. They also sell an XL version for larger projects.
- What about Dado joints you ask? – Cut perfectly fitted dados for a wide range of plywood thicknesses—no undersized bits required with Rockler’s Perfect Fit Dado Jig.
- And how about the Miter fold Blade? – Fold a single sheet of plywood into a neat, seamless box with just four cuts—non-stick coating protects against pitch buildup and corrosion.
Thanks for sponsoring the show Rockler!
