Some years ago I decided to get the Freud SBOX8 blade set for making 1/4 & 3/8 box joints and it works incredibly well. For larger boxes I have used my Freud Dial A Width box joint blade stack. The dial feature is for fine tuning to get an exact width dado. It's really just a dado stack otherwise. This worked well for larger boxes because the imperfect bottoms of the cuts really didn't show much in the large box joints on large boxes, so I found it acceptable. For box joints smaller than the 1/4" minimum of the Freud SBOX8 blade set I have been using a Freud LM72R010 ripping blade with an 1/8" FTG on the teeth (actually 0126" tooth width). It has been doing a very nice job for me too. I use these on my Unisaw and an Incra I-Box jig. The attached photo is of 1/4" box joints made with my Freud SBOX8 blade in Baltic Birch plywood. Who ever said "you can't make box joints in plywood? I do it often and with great results.
