Drew,, head on over the the Porter Cable web site, bring up their dovetail jigs and follow the links to the manuals. They explain how that is done in detail. That particular joint is on my short list of learning how to's.. *S*.. its abeauty ain't it!!!.. I can't say which rig was used to make that particular box, but a good guess would be one along the lines of an Incra. Not technically incredibly difficult, but a very demanding "getting it right" kinda thing I would think..

Hi

It can be done easy with the OakPark jig,see the video on the link below.
dovetail or the box joint it's works on both the same way..
Or you can use the small Incra jig for the same type of job.

TwoSkies has it right. You can find the supplementary manual for the 4212. The key is changing bit sizes. First you cut the larger size sockets and a pin board. Glue up and cut "flush". Then switch to a smaller bit size and cut again.

Other than having a couple different sizes of D.T. bits, I believe the other key is NOT changing any settings of the jig between runs.

And as Bob pointed out, other jigs can do this too. In fact, you can do it by hand.
