bobj3 Hi Hugh

Yes it's possible to cut the half-blind rabbited dovetails on the Incra Jig but it's one of the things you must read about or see it done on a DVD/Book it's a little bit tricky so I would suggest you get the book or the DVD b/4 you try on your Incra jig..

This may not be right but it works for me, I put the rabbit in place, 1st. all the way around the front part then I use the bottom of the rabbit cut as a new edge on the board but not forgetting I need to use the 1/2" or ? off set of the new edge,just a smaller box you could say..

Hope this helps

I should also say I'm not a big fan of the blind dovetail way I like to use the through dovetail way, no math needed just screw the front to the box to get all the fronts to match and I use the Katie jig, you can make a drawer in about 5 mins or less (right out of the shipping box) and they always fit the drawer hole.. I don't like to mill all the stock down to one thickness like that's needed with the blind dovetails with the Katie jig it can be any size you have on hand and all the parts will fit right up at glue up time .

Any one know of a source if indeed it is possible to cut the half-blind rabbited dovetail on the Incra Jig?

gav You might find it easier to just do a normal half blind dovetail and then fake the rabbet by applying a false front on the drawer.
I have no experience with the incra jig though.
