Actually cutting a finger joint ( box joint ) is not as difficult as you first may think. In fact a lot of Do It Yourself stores keep special newbie stencils or jigs for creating your own box joints. I keep on referring to box joints and this can be related to the actual history of the finger joint. centuries ago ( long before the introduction of cardboard and other man made materials ) produce for commercial areas like markets had to be kept and transported in low quality wood boxes. The woodworking finger joint was commonly used in these boxes to hold them together.
There are two different types of lighting that are important to your success as a woodworker: bright artificial lighting and natural sunlight. A well lit room is the key to producing quality work, especially if youre using power tools or deburring equipment to finish a project. Allowing natural sunlight into the workroom will make it easier to spot any imperfections in the wood that you wouldnt otherwise notice with harsh fluorescent lights. Additionally, good lighting makes it much easier to see the marks you make on the wood when you measure out your individual cuts and angles.
Next is feather board. It keeps the wood against the fence. Springs made from wood are used. Magnets, expansion bars, clamps are used to held them in place. Hold down is also attached to fence with the help of magnets. Sub fence is also available. Miter gauge comes next. From front to back one or two grooves will be running in the table. These are called miter slots and they help in guiding the crosscut sled. Crosscut sled allows catching or holding the work piece at 90 degrees to blade. Tenon jig helps to vertically hold the work piece and the cuts may be done across the end. Tenons are formed here.
