The Programmable Box Joint Jig - Introduction and First Run

As a budding woodworker I always wanted to try making box joints. My table saw however was not designed to handle a dado stack. If I could use a single blade accurately I could make wide finger joints, but that can get difficult and repetitive. If I could automate the process, then I could easily cut box joints of any size. After months of development, here is my first test run on the programmable box joint jig.

I want to go into deeper detail on how it was made and how it works. What I really want is to answer as many of YOUR questions as possible, so if there's something you want to know more about, let me know.
