    I use a Rockler dovetail jig. For my drawers I use 5/8" stock. I would like to make my tail height half the thickness of the wall thickness (5/8") but cannot. The tail height seems to be fixed based on the jig instructions. The starting-point suggestion results in tails about 1/4" which gets...

    The one tool I need to splurge on to complete my shop is a drill press. In the meantime, I need to drill a 3/8" wide bit through an 11/16 thick stock that is 5/4 wide. It has to be straight and true. Anybody know of any tricks or jigs to accomplish this with a hand drill?:fie:

    I actually built this jig, mostly, for the 45 degree feature. I wanted to not have to adjust my saw to the 45* angle for cutting mitered corners for box making as it is difficult to get an exact 45 without a lot of test cuts. It can also be adjusted to 90*, or anything in between, for cutting...
