I built one of these from a late Woodsmith. As usual, I saw something in the plan I didn't like, so I modified it slightly. If you decide to make this jig, I do suggest:
1. incorporating a miter slide instead of trying to get the jig in position with a parallel fence and clamped-on front fence the second time you use it!. What a load of nonsense. Ooops, did I say that out loud?

2. Glue the pin. It won't take long for it to wallow out the slot. Make more front fences for other pin sizes or a blank for cutting wide gaps.

3. Add more front shelf so you can cut 2 ends or 2 sides at the same time.

Although I have 3 other box joint jigs and a Woodrat, I can see where I'd grab this jig for future 3/8" box joints. I didn't make any other size fences, but it wouldn't take more than 30-40 minutes to make another size.

Here's a pic:

I actually bought a miter slide for the eventual jig I plan to make - though I think the first use will be as a cross cut sled for lap joints for an upcoming project I plan to make for my wife.

I really appreciate the pics! I plan on trying this eventually.
