This project was ideal to show the dovetail gadget in aspire 8.5 ,
then the whole project was imported into
aspire 9.0
The dovetail gadget did not work in aspire 9.0
I was amazed how well this went and went together , its a strong box
and no glue was used
Also this project is ideal for a 4x8 CNC table

Nicely done, John. Both the box and the video.

The only thing I dislike about that dovetail gadget is the unavoidable dogbone gaps it has to leave to account for the round bit. Dovetail joints done with a dovetail bit and the boards clamped vertically are not impossible but one of the most challenging joints to create tool paths for. I've done a few for my students when their projects demanded/deserved it and my brain has to take a rest for a few days after each.

I agree with the dog bone . mind you one could switch to an 1/8 bit but time wise it would be terrible and filling the holes is really not a solution
I did this stool awhile back and you can see here the square fit is better and I think it was an 1/8 bit , tighter fit well nicer to look at

Stan I just quickly downloaded the updated Dovetail Gadget and it would only install in my VCarve Pro V9 but I copied and pasted into the Aspire V9 Gadget folder and tried it out it does work with Aspire V9 now. I don't understand why it only installs into VCarve Pro and not Aspire.
