Hello G and welcome to the forums...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

It is pretty straightforward on the Keller Jig, that is all I have ever cut an angled joint with.


I can't find anything online for the Incra. The hard part i see for the Incra is holding the stock to the fence at the correct angles. You could try making sloped auxiliary fences to support your pieces.

Can someone post a picture of an "angled dovetail"...apparently my 3D spatial thinking module is on the fritz today (all technical jargon). I keep getting this image in my mind of a piece of wood moving it's way through an invisible table top at an angle...sorta holographic...spinning around while somebody dressed in a Merlin suit is making waving gestures with his hands...

Sorry...must be something in the coffee...

Are you trying to join two pieces at greater or less than 90 using dovetails or is one of the pieces at an angle to the other (sorta parallelogram-ish)...?

@kp91 Can you post one of what you did with the Keller...?

No time for coffee...no food or drinks at the computer...get to work!

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

this demo is pretty good on doing the machine angle dovetails. Part one is 'normal corners', part 2 and 3 are compound corners. I wish I had this video years ago. My project was no where near as complex, I did not use a compound angle. It was a simple magazine pocket on a side table, so the ends were vertical and the piece came out as an angle.

the attached instruction page shows the wedge needed to be used when doing compound cuts pretty clearly.

I made a bunch of serving trays that way about 10 years ago. It's not for the faint of heart. Lots of ways to screw up and I found most of them.

Remember that each edge to be joined must approach the bit at 90 degrees relative TO THAT EDGE. The piece with tails must be attached to the slider at an angle so the angled end sits flat on the table (see image 249).

The piece with half-blind sockets needs a tapering jig to slide along with it against the fence. This jig is represented in image 252 by the red sandpaper. The jig really needs to be slightly longer than the workpiece and the jig needs a hook on the end to carry the workpiece along with it.

Now that I have a Leigh DR4R, I wouldn't use the Incra to make these joints, but if it's what you have . . . .
