Dress up your mitered corner joints and add strength, too, with the Rockler Router Table Spline Jig! This clever jig locks into a standard router table miter slot and features a sled that holds your workpiece at a 45° angle while you guide it smoothly past the router bit. The adjustable fences act as stops to position your workpiece—one setting can cut all four slots for a frame, or eight slots for a box. Try different router bits to achieve different effects—straight bits, V-groove bits, dovetail bits and more!

  • Capable of accommodating a frame with a standard 11'' x 14'' opening, or a box measuring up to 12'' x 12'' x 12''
  • Smooth-sliding tracks ensure accurate cuts and ease of use
  • Includes centering tool, which aligns the jig with the center of the router bit; stores onboard
  • Centering line on sled aligns the bit with your cut line
  • Taller fences can be added to stock ABS fences to stabilize larger frames
  • Fences are removable to accommodate taller boxes
  • Workpiece can be clamped to sled if additional support is needed
  • All adjustments are achieved with tool-free knobs
  • MDF base with durable ABS sled
  • Fits standard 3/8'' x 3/4'' miter slot
  • Instructions included
  • Fits router tables on which center of miter track is between
3-1/4'' and 6-7/8'' from center of the bit.

Wonderful Tool
I can't do all the nifty jigs the brainiacs on YouTube come up with, too much time and waste. Rockler engineers hit a home run with this jig. Use it sporadically but the results are always the same - a beautiful finished product. Dovetail is my favorite bit.

fwbrombergjr on Sep 29, 2018
I could have built a jig, but I couldn't have built it better than this for anything near this price. This looks like a real time saver, and by the time you get a box to the point where it needs splines, you're already too far in to risk messing it up with an imprecise tool. Seems like a no brainer to me.
Travis F on Sep 28, 2018
Looks like it will work great for splines and accents.
John K on Jul 28, 2018
Usually do these spline cuts on the table saw. This sled will save in set up time.

Will this fit my Kreg Router Table? What is the minimum distance from the bit should the Dado track be to know if it will work?
Pablo Cruiser on May 17, 2015

Steve on Jan 14, 2017
can i do dove tail cuts with this router jig ?
A shopper on May 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes - you can use a dovetail bit to cut slots and then make the spline "keys" using the same bit. Takes a little trial and error to get the keys just right but the result is worth it.
Will this fit on my Benchdog ProMax table?
A shopper on Apr 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this will fit your ProMax table.
Is this jig compatible with the rockler trim routing table?
Duane C on Jul 3, 2015
Rockler Router Table Spline Jig
Rockler Router Table Spline Jig
Rockler Trim Router Table
Rockler Trim Router Table
BEST ANSWER: Probably not. The spline jig locks into a miter slot usually installed on a regular router table. The trim router table toes not have the necessary depth from the center line of the front of the table. I suppose your could use the trim router and use is as an insert to a larger table that could then accomodate the miter track for this jig. By then you might consider just buying a full size router table.
does the miter bars come with the jig?
Billy on Aug 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. This is a great jig - I used to cut splines on the table saw. Using the router table eliminates all the chip-out, especially in brittle woods.
Any tear out issue(s) from approach the router bit from the side rather than right-to-left?
Chuck R on Aug 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: None. I used it to do splines for grandchildren’s. Jewelry boxes and they were perfect. And I used birds eye maple and rosewood, both prone to tear out.
Can this be used with the Rockler Trim Router Table?
Clare D on Nov 24, 2017
Rockler Router Table Spline Jig
Rockler Router Table Spline Jig
Rockler Trim Router Table
Rockler Trim Router Table
BEST ANSWER: The spline jig is designed to slide in a miter slot. As the Trim Router table doesn't have a miter slot it can't work with the spline jig. Apart from that the table is also too small for this jig.
I have a Bosch Router Table. How do I prevent the jig from sliding side to side? I can't tighten it to the miter slots.
Tuan N on May 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Try this, add a small strip of painter's tape to the inside edge of the table miter slot. You can add more than one strip in order to increase its thickness. By trial and error you should be able to get a tight fit.
The Overview says this jig is "Capable of accommodating a frame with a standard 11'' x 14'' opening", but why won't a larger frame such as 24" X 36" work with adequate supplemental tall fences?
D. Y on May 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: To be honest about it, I have done just that. Adding taller support fences will allow you use the jig with larger frames. Hope this helps.
Will this work with my Incra Router Table?
Jay R on Aug 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Don't know about the Incra table but the jig has a fair amount of adjustment built in. Center of the track should be between 3 1/4" and 6 7/8" to the center of the bit. Hope that helps.
Will this spline jig work on the cast iron general table?
Grant on Jul 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: •Fits router tables on which center of miter track is between 3-1/4'' and 6-7/8'' from center of the bit.
Fits in standard 3/4" miter slots

Should I use a upcut or downcut router bit with the spllne jig?
mountainman on Apr 17, 2016

frank on Feb 28, 2016
Is their a video demo for cutting keys for splines?
Jim S on Jan 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I do not know if there is one for this specific jig, but I'm sure there are some on you tube for cutting splines.
Is the Rockler Router Table Spline Jig compatible with the Bench Dog® ProTop Contractor Portable Router Table?
Jerry on Nov 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Jerry, the best way to approach the answer to this question is for you to do some homework. Miter slot distances vary from one style router table to another. You need to measure yours from the center of the router bit to the inside edge of your miter slot. Once you have that measurement, you'll need to have the Table Spline Jig measured the same way: inside edge of the miter bars to the center of the router bit hole in the jig.

Gregory B on Jan 28, 2018
What is the tolerance/maximum height of cut possible with this 'router table spline jig'? ie: what is the distance from the top of the laminate base to the bottom of the jig's sled. I build large box frames and like fairly deep splines to show on the sides.
bernie on Nov 24, 2017
What is the minimum size of material that can be used on this jig? If I put a .5" X .5" X 4" piece on there will the grooves still support it?
