Finger joint

Vinger joints (4)How to make finger joints, the easy way, with a tablesaw sled and a simple jig.

With this jig, you can only make finger joint with the thickness of your saw blade. In my case 3 mm. You need to have a strip aluminum or some scrap wood with the same thickness.

And you also need a table saw sled (for example this one http://woodgears.ca/delta_saw/small_sled.html)

The most tricky part is how to make the first cut and how to make sure that your joint is well aligned. I put the first piece flush with the aluminum strip. The first cut of the other piece needs to shift with the thickness of the saw blade.

Finger joint: the movie

You don’t have to saw one at the time. In the picture below I made 4 joints in one go.
