Router jig plans

I just finished a new router table, and am beginning to build some jigs. Anyone know of good plans for a box joint jig and a spline jig? Thanks!

Welcome to the forum! When you get a minute go ahead and add your first name to your signature line so it will show in each post.

Seems like I've seen a few threads on box joint jigs and fixtures - did you do a search?

I would use your table saw, and I will tell you why. You probably know that you need a backer board on both the router table and the table saw to keep from blowing out the back edges of the box joints. Using the router table you need a backer on the front and back. When you pull back the router bit is spinning counter-clockwise and will blow out the right side of the box joint.

This is the BJ jig I use and also the blade. Just scroll down a little to see the blade. The jig is very easy to use.

Yes, in fact I have looked outside of the forum, too. Most are about jigs for table saws, which I suppose I could do, but want to do some dovetail splines, too. I figured that since Rockler and others sell them, someone would surely have one they had made, or know where to find plans. I thinks it's always more fun that way.
