Welcome to The Router Forums.
Dovetailing is something I haven't tried yet myself though I do have some interest in the technique and have done some research on it. My first attempts to make dovetail joints will most likely be of the type called 'sliding dovetail'.
I'm not sure whether the problem you are trying to find a work around for was an issue with 'depths' or 'angles'.
