The supplies, wood and tools listed below will provide you with everything you need to build the spline and box joint jig.
Hardware and Supplies
* Dimensions specified as "inner thread diameter" x "outer knob diameter". The part referenced here is made from brass since Amazon doesn't appear to have a plastic version with the ideal dimensions. Most of the Amazon star knobs with a 5/16" insert have quite a large outer diameter. They would work on this jig but limit the range of motion.
