Measured drawing to make the mitered spline and tenon jig I made in episode 67. It is designed to be used with my table saw sled.

Nick, N-I-C-E!!! Very clean, very simple, but looks like it will be an Awesome addition to the shop! Thanks for what you do!

So now we delve into the T-track add-ons built into the Miter Sled. I can hardly wait to next see what you’ve engineered. Sweet build, new tricks, more Baltic Birch to order.
Nick – May 22, 2016:
thank you – can never have too much baltic birch!

I down loaded you plan but when i cut the wood it’s in inches so i converted it to metric so when you have 2@ 7 15/16 it is 201.613mm and 1@ 9″ is 228.600 the jig is not does not seem to be square this cut has to have 50% cut to make it square Were i am going wrong
Nick – June 20, 2016:
In the video I show the longest side (hypotenuse) of the triangle to be slightly oversized. This is so you trim it to final length once assembled. The key is to have the 90 degree joint as close to square as you can get it.
Kálmán Horváth – July 24, 2016:
Thank You! I down loaded you plan. Very liked the video. You are an expert craftsmanship and a showman! It was every clear. I am trying to prepare it as soon as possible.
Sorry but my English only beginner.
Nick – July 25, 2016:
glad to hear you like the table saw sled plans – thanks for the kind words!

I wasn’t able to comment on YouTube, not much of a computer whiz. But this seems to work just fine.
Thanks for your videos and generosity. You have a lot of skill, and I’ve learned a few things from your videos. Really like the simple tenon/spline jig.
Keep up the good work and positive attitude.
Nick – December 5, 2016:
I appreciate you taking the time to comment here – I’m no computer wiz either – glad to hear you are getting some info from my stuff!
KURT – December 19, 2016:
I’ll be downloading this plan as well as the sled plan , I’ve already purchased the hardware for the sled can’t wait to get started. Thanks for your great insight and awesome channel.
Nick – December 19, 2016:
cool, you’ll have to let me know how it turns out!
cap6097 – December 21, 2016:
Nick, all I can say is you are my new Norm Abram. Keep up the great work. Question, is the spline jig available?
Nick – December 21, 2016:
that’s probably the best compliment I could get, thanks!! I grew up watching Norm!! what do you mean by is it available? The plans for the sled are here and the spline jig here
Sorry Nick, what was the angled jig called you made the kerf cuts with? You can tell I am a newbie.
that was another spline jig but that one didn’t have plans – you can find that one here

thanks – every time we do something we become better!
Bruno MAC LUCKIE – January 4, 2018:
Hello! I come from a little french island call REUNION Island. and I just want to say in my approximative english that your video is very nice to see and a real support to build my own ools. THANKS
Nick – January 6, 2018:
very cool to hear!

This is, by far, one of the best miter (and tenon) jig I have seen. For the past few days, I have been designing one of these myself for a Rockwell Bladerunner x2 jigsaw. Due to limitations of board width, I cannot immediately create this, but I can use several elements of this design in my own. I was wondering, considering the adjustable slot screws, how you align the jig to ensure that you are cutting straight? I like the adjustable aspect of the jig, but I am concerned that if I am off, even a millimeter, I will have a gap or a misalignment. Sorry if this seems stupid. I am sure you measure, or considering the size, just but the jig against the blade for the 45 miter cut, but not sure how you make sure the tenon is straight. Thanks.
Nick – April 30, 2018:
thanks – I have an adjustable one that I need to do a video on at some point – granted you want to build it as square as you can get – if you are off in the slightest, you can shim the base of of the jig to ensure the vertical face is perfectly 90 degrees to the sled base – with as long as the jig base is, this can be done with just a piece of masking tape being the shim depending on how far off you are
a good example of masking tape as a shim would be on a table saw cast iron wing extension – in assembling my previous saw, one of the extension wings dipped down a couple thousandths from the main saw table – I removed the wing and added one layer of masking tape on the bottom of the edge and reinstalled the wing – the tape was enough thickness to bring it back into alignment – hope al that makes sense

I’m from Brazil and I’m really thankful for the videos you have posted. It really helps me since I’m not a professional, but I take woodworking as a hobby. Your tips are great. Thanks a bunch!
Nick – May 2, 2018:
thanks, glad to hear it’s helping!
