Default New Here Not To Wood

Hello fellow router woodies, hey if you can't get it done with a router it can't be done or shouldn't be. Not that the rest of my tools get dust on them. Don't know why I haven't been in this forum before, Wouldn't be here know if it wasn't total frustration with a new Rockler dove tail jig, but that's another post.
Glad to be here hope I can be of some help.

In woodworking there is no scrap, only firewood.

Welcome aboard and start making drawers with the jig for every piece of furniture in the house. It won't be long before you can do it well.

Thanks guys, I slept on it, formed a plane of attack made a very big Practice board and started from the beginning making one adjustment at a time on both the left and right hand sides. Still not super impressed with the Rockler jig but then it's probably not real happy with me. Between the two of us we turned out 6 drawers that lok pretty darn good for first timers.

Welcome Lyle,
Lots of knowledge to draw from on here. How about some picture of your progress. Maybe it will encourage me to get my Rockler jig out of the box. Got it last Christmas, Instructions snowed me so didn’t take it out the box yet. My Oak Park is so easy to use.

Cut it twice, and it's still too short!
