Hi,

I need to make a number of small drawers and saw an interesing joint that someone had used, they called it a spline dovetail. I was thinking that maybe one could make a jig to do the cuts in box sides a corner at a time so everything lines up........ Anyone know anything about how to do these? The dovetail spline should be easy, just a sliding dovetail cut off......

The first one what I'm looking for! I'm not sure I have the equipment to do it the way shown but the end result is what I want.

Thanks!

I've seen a simple jig that holds the box at a 45 but I happened to have that Craftsman rig and it worked pretty well. And You're welcome, anytime Pat

I don't remember where I saw it, but you can biuld a fixture that kind of resembles a "K" laid on its side. It's just 2 boards each at a 45 to the base. the base can either ride the fence or you can put a spine on the bottom to ride in the slot of the table.
Once it's all put together, just run it across a wide straight bit to make an opening.
