Latest Rockler Jig Uses Router Table to Create Decorative Wooden Box Corners
 
Medina, MN – Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced the Router Table Spline Jig, a device 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 Router Table Spline Jig consists of two main parts – 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. The resulting spline cuts allow users to add their own key stock to create beautifully adorned joints. The Router Table Spline Jig specializes in small boxes and frames, while the recently introduced Large Box Spline Jig utilizes handheld routing to cut splines for large boxes and chests that are too large for a router table to handle. 
 
"The Router Table Spline Jig is an exciting way to use the router table to add designer flair to mitered joints," says Steve Krohmer, Rockler's Vice President of Product Marketing. "Different spline shapes can be created by using different router bits, resulting in strikingly beautiful joints."
 
The Router Table Spline Jig consists of a high-pressure laminate base which attaches to the router table with a pair of miter bars and 5-star knobs, and a durable plastic sled which cradles the miter joint and slides in the channels of the base to guide centered spline cuts through the joint. The Router Table Spline Jig is capable of accommodating frames with a standard 11'' x 14'' opening, or boxes measuring up to 12'' x 12'' x 12''. Two adjustable fences sandwich the workpiece for extra stability during cutting. A centering tool is included, which aligns the jig with the center of the router bit and attaches to the jig for storage when not in use.
 
The Router Table Spline Jig (59288) retails for $79.99 and can be purchased at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, Rockler.com, or from the Rockler catalog. For store locations or a free catalog, please visit http://www.rockler.com or call 1-877-ROCKLER.
