Default Incra jig and rabbeted half blind dovetails

Good evening:

I don't have my Incra set up yet, but I am wondering if it possible to do half blind rabbeted dovetails for drawers with the Incra.

Thanks

So it can be done. Hard? Difficult, if you know?

Thanks

I think it could be done. It definitely would be a little harder, the rabbet would have to be put on the drawer front prior to the doing the slots when you lay it flat and use the stop block. The height of the bit would be the critical step and I might be wrong but I think the rabbet must equal the thickness of the drawer side stock. So if your box sides are 1/2 your front would need to be 3/4 inch with a 1/2 rebate. I would think a test piece would need to be used Steve and once you have it right on, follow the steps in the DVD as you normally would.

Gentlemen, I cheat by fitting separate fronts after the drawer is finished, just like mid to lower range furniture manufacturers.

Harry, with the Gifkin Jig, that is the only way to do that particular joint with a rebate.
