Default Skewed Sliding Dovetail

I'd like to make something similar to this, how are these done?

Hi Kev

It's done on the router table, once the dovetails are in place on both parts (sliding dovetail) then it's cut off and made Sq..than with the plunge router and a template you hog out the pocket hole..just like a candy dish..

Almost the same as the Mug stand below

Hi Kev,
I just saw this and lucky for you, (Living in the US).
Look up your local Rockler and buy the most useful router table accessory in the known universe!
An Incra Jig!
With this precision router fence positioner the sliding double dovetail you see in the picture is as easy as A,B,C.
Of course you will need a router table, a minor point I may have neglected to mention.

Very best rgds,

Henry.

Hi

I will agree that the Incra Jig is a great jig but it's not needed for this one , one 1" wide dovetail bit will do the job easy as i.2.3,at 11.50 for the bit, once the dovetails are in place just clip off the sharp corners (with the band saw) so you end up with a solid sq.box (block), then comes the fun part plowing out the hole in the block..with a bowl type router bit.

I have a table and a jointech clincher fence but still don't get how to size the tail to fit the pin without trial and error and I can see wasting away alot of box trying to get it right. Also, looks as if after the pins and tails are cut the box has to be cut at a 45 degree angle to the dovetail?
