Hi John:

There are several versions available across the 'net. Start by studying what is available. There is one type that cuts both the pins and tails at the same time. Break it down into it's constituent parts and you'll find it not too difficult to make. It is the adjustment methods that are the killer.

In almost all of these the comb is the hard part to do. However, I would suggest that you take a look at Richard Stottmann's dovetail template master at stots.com . His half blind dovetails are a kludge but the other forms are brilliant. Take a look before you drop your nickles on something that may, or may not, suit your needs.

dutchman 46 Hello John, Glad that you are here. I was wondering, how Long you have been working wood? It is rather hard to make yourself a dovetail jig, but you should be able to purchase one and make dovetails. After making dovetails for for a time, then you will have something to work with as far as ideas to build one. They are fun to be able to take a piece of wood, and make A joint. Have fun, and enjoy the forums
