Box joints are strong and attractive, and with the help of our Router Table Box Joint Jig, they're also straightforward to make. This jig uses precision-machined solid brass indexing keys to ensure uniform finger spacing and an airtight fit. Keys are included for three finger widths: 1/4'', 3/8'' and 1/2'', and can be used with stock up to 3/4'' thick. The smooth-sliding sled features long ''skis'' that keep it square to the bit and tabs on the bottom that stop the sled at the end of the cut. Lock it into the miter slot of your table with our comfortable Easy-to-Grip knobs and you're ready to rout.


  • Solid brass indexing keys ensure uniform spacing and tight finger joints
  • Indexing keys store neatly in slots behind the sled
  • Comfortable ergonomic knobs lock platform into 3/4'' miter slot
  • Sled is made of durable glass-filled nylon, slides smoothly and provides ample support
  • Sacrificial MDF fence face helps control tearout
  • Dimensionally stable MDF platform has low-friction melamine coating for easy sliding and durability
  • Requires a straight router bit (sold separately) to match the size of the indexing key. Up-cut spiral bits deliver the cleanest cuts and help prevent blowout.

Box Joint Jig 59032
Well done - good unique design. Good stable design works 90 deg vs other designs. Considering design and all components supplied, worth the price.
Two things to do before use: 1. Drill a hole to access the router bit height adjustment dial (if needed). (Drill from both sides to avoid damage to the melamine surface.)
2. Apply a good coat of paste wax to the melamine and carriage surfaces to make sliding easier.
Suggestions: The hole for the router bit needs a 45 degree chamfer to make passing the workpiece over easier and to rid waste better. I used a rat tail file for this to avoid damage to the surface.
A directed vacuum to remove waste as it is cut is required. The guide groves in the melamine collect waste which then impedes movement of the work piece thru the router bit.
One other thing; Don't back the workpiece over the router bit after cutting. Lift it off the jig, then reverse the fence movement.
I'd buy it again.

Nice jig
After easy assmbly, I cut several 1/4" joints in thin ash wood. After adjusting the fit I was able to make a nice little box with near perfect joints. I made two alignment marks with a marker on my router table so I can return the jig to the same position. A very nicely designed jig.

Great jig!
This is a great jig value for making box joints. Took less than 10 min to assemble out of the box, instructions are very clear and easy to follow. Within minutes of setting up, I had made my first box joints and they fit like a glove! Highly recommended!

I figured it would be faster and more accurate with less chip out then my homemade jig I use on my table saw and it comes with 3 different size fingers
Hugh L on Nov 16, 2018
I'll be making a few dozen banks as gifts. I trust Rockler. I viewed several online videos of people using this jig. I have a family member that uses Rockler products as well. I feel this will help me make some very nice small to medium size boxes and drawers.
C H on Nov 15, 2018
Woodsmith recommended this product in a recent issue of their magazine. Like their editor said my homemade jig was old and somewhat unsatisfactory. I have a project in mind and will put it to immediate use.
Beverly P on Nov 10, 2018
I have been thinking about this for a long time. Did not want to build the jig.
jason m on Nov 6, 2018
Thought about making my own but after researching costs, the difference between buying this vs building one was too little to justify not getting a quality Rockler product. I also liked that it included 3 different brass spacers. Would definitely recommend.
Wade M on Nov 5, 2018

BARRY D on Jul 5, 2018
We tried making our own jig, but it didn't seem to be precise enough as some joints fit and others didn't. We are hoping the metal keys will provide the stability we need for the precise cuts.

How do you make the first cut?
Ivan T on Apr 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You first need to make your three spacers 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 inch for the setup between the brass bar and the router bit. first slide piece against bar and cut. next put the spacer you made against tthe brass bar, and the next piece against the spacer and then the rest is just cut .
Write-up says for "3/4 inch miter slot". Does it mean 3/8?
ChetP on Apr 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 3/4" Wide, 3/8" Deep miter slot.
Will this work on a kreg Precision Benchtop Router Table, prs2100?
Lynn V on Apr 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes thats what I use.
Will it fit on a Bosch RA1181 router table?
PapaBill on May 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: you might have to put a couple of layers of tape on the pieces that fit in the slot because the provided one won't tighten up enough to hold it in the track
This jig fits nicely in the slot on my Bosch router table but tightening the five star knobs only stops the guides from moving on the jig. It does nothing to stop the jig from going side to side in the table slot. Is there some other piece or part I need to stop the guides from moving in the table slot?
BamaTony on May 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Add some tape the slot. It will tighten it up.
Does this fit a DELTA 43-505 Router/Shaper?
dennis on Aug 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Sorry I have no idea if it will work, I use it on a Kreg router table
What is the largest size box you can make with this jig?
S N on Jun 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Actually you are limited to the overhead room in your shop, provided you make each cut with the piece tightley against the brass guide. I have done a 2 ' x 4' box with my jig. I guess it also depends on how accurate your set up spacer is. Lots of luck!
Are the indexing Keys compatible with the old rockler box joint jig?on that model, the indexing is done with long bars that are a pain to store as to swap out. The keys look to be a smart enhancement, but I don't want to buy a whole new jig. And if they are, can I purchase the keys by themselves?
Douglas C on Jun 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately I have no experience with the older jig, so to be fair I cannot accurately answer your question.
What is the best router bit to use with this box joint jig? A up cut or down cut spiral bit or a straight bit?
lester m on May 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Upcut Carbide bit. Steel bits will dull and overheat quickly.

Will this jig work on the Sawstop inline router table?
O T on Jul 14, 2018
Will this jig fit on all router tables?
Larry H on Jun 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This jig should work with most router tables that have a 3/4 inch track. Easy to set-up work and the brass fingers are accurate. Rich M
Does this work only on Rockler tables? Can I use it on my Craftsman table?
Arne S on Jun 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This works fine on my Kreg table. As long as the table has a standard mitre slot and the slot is no more than 7 inches from your router opening or the position of the router bit when it is above the table.
Will this work with a WoodCraft table?
Don D on Jun 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I'm not 100% sure of this but it should work on any router table with a groove for a miter gauge on the front edge. That's where the jig mount/secures to the table.

Good luck!
Will this fit a Bosch Router Table - RA1171?
Roberto P on Aug 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have a Bosch RA1181 router table and the jig fits fine in it but make sure that it is properly tightened as specified in the installation instructions.
Will router and jig handle bamboo flooring?
David V on Jul 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Possibly, this jig is small, so if the pieces of flooring aren’t too long it should work. I find if the work pieces are over two feet long it’s difficult hold them in the jig to get accurate cuts.
Will this work on a Jessem router table?
Shawn on May 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If the Jessem router table meets all the specs laid out in the literature it'll work
Where can I find a class to learn this?????
Al on Sep 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I'm not aware of any classes being offered but you could check with your local Rockler store for one-on-one set up and use instructions. They're usually very helpful.
what is the best router bit to use with this jig?
Paul B on Sep 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I use upcut spiral bits. They can be kinda spendy, but a clean cut is important.
Would this jig work to put through dovetails in the face of the wood I am using to make a flag case?
Jeffrey L H on Jul 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Sorry this jig is only for finger joints. If your looking for a jig I do recommend checking out the dovetail jigs available at Rockler. They have different varieties. Hope this helps.
I have rocklers router table and the miter slot is farther away than the recommended distance by 1/8” -1/4” will I have a problem?
George W on Jul 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not sure I understand your question but mine works great. I suggest you prep some scrap wood and play with it until your sure you understand how it works. Good idea to never trust instructions but follow them through at least once. Rye
How deep can slots be cut in the material using a stander router bit?
C. H on May 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Per the downloadable directions the maximum thickness is 1". That is also the length required for the fingers. Depth of finger cut is the thickness of the wood being used plus a very small amount so you can sand the fingers flush after assembly..
Will this work on a Rockler Trim Router Table? Thank you!

Rockler Router Table Box Joint Jig
Rockler Router Table Box Joint Jig
Rockler Trim Router Table
Rockler Trim Router Table
BEST ANSWER: The Box Joint Jig anchors to a 3/4" miter track, which the Trim Router Table does not have. You may want to consider the Rockler Convertible Benchtop Router Table.
I have a woodpecker large router table 27'' X 43'' top, from the center of the bit to the inside of the miter slot closet to the bit is 6.750''. It says it needs to be between 4.500 and 6.250'' will I need to do some type of modifcation to the jig to make it work? And if so is the jig large enough to be able to do so? I do not want to buy it to then find out nothing can be done and therefor have to go thrugh all the hassle of returning it THANKS.
Grizz on Nov 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: There is 7/8" extra base at the back end, you could extend the slots by 1/2" but that wouldn't leave much for the adjuster nut to clamp down on. The base is 3/8" (I think) HDF so you could make a longer one using the hole patterns from the original.
Would this work on my Bosch router table?
B J on Nov 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It should. It works fine on my Kreg table.
Will this jig work on a craftsman router table?
William B on Aug 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: As per the specs of the box joint jig, Near edge of router table's miter track must be between 4-1/2'' and 6-1/4'' from the center of the router bit. Also the miter slot must measure 3/4 wide by 3/8 deep.. I have a royobi router table and the first spec was alright but the miter slot wasn't. I needed to modify the miter slot and rout a 1 inch slot to accept a rockler miter bar.
How do you stop the jig from sliding left and right on the table? Tighten 5 star knobs doesn't help. Bosch table 3/4' slots
Guy L on Jul 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Something is not set up correctly on your jig. The 5 star knobs make it quick & painless to clamp in a 3/4" slot.
Do you have any pictures of your jig & your router table? This should not be a problem.
