MLCS Spline Jig "Pro"
The Spline Jig is designed for table saws to save time and to safely create strong, decorative joints. When making fine furniture, picture frames and boxes, spline joints are one of the most beautiful methods of joinery used in woodworking. You can use contrasting wood tones or various spline thicknesses to create decorative accents. Spline joints are not only attractive but feature extra gluing surfaces compared to a plain joint, making them one of the strongest joints possible.

The home-made spline jig I crafted years ago is not adjustable, so I purchased this adjustable MLCS spline jig. A wise decision. It's very easy to assemble and is solid and safe. But like Mike, I added a 2x4 across the saw cut for added stability and safety. I may even add a second t-track, also. I highly recommend this spline jig.

Cutting spline slots into mitered frames is very easy with this jig. I glued and screwed 2x4s on edge across the saw cuts in the base to improve stiffness and provide some extra safety from the blade on the back side. Probably not necessary, but I'm a belt and suspenders type of guy.

Pictured and described except, MDF is 3/4" not 1/2" board, which is better yet.Jig is large/heavy enough to be very stable in use.Offers great support for your projects.I'm been thinking of making one of these for a while.By the time you purchase materials/hardware and don't forget the labor,it's most adviseable to buy this one.Also the core is MDF,not particle/melamine board, which I only see.Jig assembled very quickly,it was cut and drilled perfectly.I did not buy the thin rip saw jig,I already have one.
