Once you get your dovetail jig from HF you may want to get this also it will help.

Dovetail Jig Setup Gauge
for 10.oo bucks
Simplify the setup for half blind dovetail joints!

Setup is often the hardest part of making dovetail joints.
This Dovetail Jig Setup Gauge, which works with most dovetail jigs as well as the Porter Cable 4112, has eliminated these problems.
Simply place the gauge on the edge of an adjustable jig, slide the stops against the gauge and you’re ready to cut properly aligned, 1/2", half blind dovetails.
There is also a height measurement setting for your dovetail bit.

Just a NOTE ***
The Through Dovetail Template
Would be a easy one to make with 1/4" plastic stock and a table top jig saw, but the key to it is the bit.
5/16" straight and a template guide bushing .
Or just buy the kit from Rockler and use it on the HF dovetail jig.
30.oo and 50.oo
Most of the jigs are made by Woodstock sold Central Machinery
