Default An interesting idea for making dovetails

I hadn't thought of this method before coming across this.

That's pretty clever. I'd have to X out the parts to be removed or I'd surely cut the pins on the wrong side of the mark.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

The only thing I might add is a depth stop. If you clamped something from the other end of the table right behind the blade I think you could do that.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Saw something the other day, about making dovetails with a table saw. Didn't think of posting it. This looks easier anyway.

My table only tips one way.

Tipping the table would require you to cut one side of the dovetail from the top of the board, and cutting the other side of the dovetail would require you to cut from the bottom of the board.

Using the angled jig would allow you to make all cuts from the same reference face.


In woodworking there is always more then one way to accomplish something.
