How to set up a router dovetail jig for Box and finger joints for the first time.. So last time I used the Trend CDJ300 router dovetail Jig to make a dovetailed box or drawer out of scrap poplar wood. This time round I change the router jigs template configuration to make another slightly smaller box out of scrap wood.
I've had the finger joint template for this jig for some time, but never had a reason, or the time to play around with box joints.
It's really simple to use, and even easier, I think, to understand whats happening with the guide bushes, copy rings and cutters to make really easy and really quick wooden joints from this set up.
Although a little looser fitting than i was expecting, this method was way faster than using either a router table, or even a table saw with a box joint jig and a set of stacked dado blades.
I'm really quite impressed with how this worked, and even how they turned out. I'm pretty sure I'll be leaving this jig set up with the finger joint templates in it from now on.
