ROCKLER Woodworking and Hardware introduced the Router Table Spline Jig that attaches to a router table to create decorative splines for mitered box and frame joints.
The splines also provide extra strength in the joint. The jig consists of the base, which attaches to the router table and the sled, which holds the workpiece at a 45-degree angle to the router bit. The sled slides in the tracks of the base to guide the spline cuts. There’s also a Large Box Spline for use with a hand-held router. The jigs can be purchased at www.rockler.com.
