Dovetail Jig Woodworking Plan

Woodworking Plans: Dovetail Jig Now you can cut perfect half-blind dovetails for drawer and box construction using the Woodsmith dovetail jig.

Our jig uses wooden cams to hold your workpiece steady so you can apply more pressure against the workpieces. This keeps them from slipping while you're routing the dovetails with a hand-held router. And makes for a tight-fitting joint.

The dovetail jig accepts stock from 1/2" thick to 1-1/16" thick and up to 11-3/4" wide. The jig is 22" wide and 6" deep.

This woodworking plan was originally published in Woodsmith No. 58.
