my question is how to make the through dove tails I have a template for blind dove tails? I am actually a fairly new wood worker I have played around with my tools for many years but only made small stuff and never done real finish projects, mostly my stuff has been made up of rough work I have just got the time to really try my hand at building cabinets and stuff I have the blind tails to where they are decent or passable but I cannot figure out how to get the end of drawers with the through type tails I have been making them with the blind tails same as the front.

Bob, that looks SO simple...

What do you do... just screw it to a straight piece of scrap? :) :)

... and you only need to have a 5/8" guide bushing?

Can be used on a router table!! Simply... No hassle setup??

Hi Greg
The two on the bottom are MLCS, the one on the top is a Katie the same as the GIFKINS DOVETAIL JIG in a way ,all 3 work great the only bad part of the Katie and the Gifkins is they both cost about 230.oo bucks ea.but they both are Not adjustable and you can add to the setup on the Katie but it's not a cheap add on.
I should NOTE, you don't need to buy the extra fingers from Katie you can make your own with some 1/2" thick Walnut :).
Then use a small tee-nut and a short Allen Flat Hd. Screw to hold them in place.
JUst use one of the ones that came with the jig and use a trim router bit to make a copy of it.

Hi Greg

Yes it's a slick jig and they do want the big bucks for it, that's why I started to use the MLCS plus it will do long stock and all at the right price.
BUT all you get from MLCS is the plates but that's not a big deal it's easy to make the blocks and the clamping bars for them and then they can be use on the router table. :)

here's a link to what they look like when they are ready to use on the router table.
