Chestmate Dovetail Jig Chestmate allows you the freedom to create your own custom, variable or fixed-space dovetail patterns on any width stock. Make dovetails on 1/2" to 1" thick wood simply by cutting slots in a guide board which is then used for indexing. The guide board serves as a backer board and can be reused for future projects. The pin guide is adjustable to fine tune the dovetail joint fit. Kit includes dovetail jig, indexing guide, pin guide and detailed instructions. Please note; Chestmate requires the use of the following popular router accessories: a 5/8" x 1/2" template bushing which fits in any 6" diameter router base, a 3/4" 14° dovetail bit to cut the tails and a 5/16" straight bit to cut the pins, all sold separately. This kit works great with dovetail bits 134-1205 or 134-0805 and straight bit 102-0562.

122- Hand Cut Half Blind Dovetails Guild members will remember this small excerpt from the Shaker Table series. Its just a taste of some of the fun we have in the Guild. Sign up now and get 15% off your membership. Dovetails: very few joints are held in such high regard. Not sure why exactly, but there seems to be a nearly universal love and adoration for this flying vermin-inspired interlocking joint. And I don't care what anyone says, doves are just dirty pigeons in a lighter-colored outfit. To be fair though, the joint is beautiful, incredibly strong, and requires skill and attention to detail to cut by hand. One of the most common variations of the dovetail is known as a half-blind dovetail. You'll find this joint most often on drawer fronts where you don't necessarily want to see the joint from the front. With a few tools, a little know-how, and a lot of patience, this beloved joint is well within your grasp. And speaking of patience, what's the rush people?!?! It seems like some folks feel that if they aren't cutting their dovetails in three minutes, they aren't doing it correctly. I say put the breaks on and enjoy the process. After all, isn't that why you're cutting them by hand? If I wanted them cut in just a few minutes, I'd keep a dedicated jig set up and knock them out with my router. Take your time.....be one with the wood......
Dovetail Joint - Level On The Inside You sit me down To explain All the trials you've endured Around and around The refrain Rings the same each time it's heard Entertain the notion Entertain the notion That the only thing I hear Is the crack of a smile In a face That ain't so sincere When I'm measuring out your quality It is only as deep as your modesty As your insides fall to pieces Shattered by the silent treatment Things are only fragile 'til they break Feigning your humility It only serves to weaken the Most common observations that you make Drown me out in conversation Surf a wave of provocation Wash away my interest in your wake I think you can Reach a place Where the impetus is pure You'll understand A disgrace Is the thing that makes us feel Level on the inside Level on this outside I'm content to know it Level on the inside (level on the outside) Level on the outside I don't need to show it
