The Chest Mate dovetail jig helps you create dovetails on boards of any width and space them exactly how you want them.…
That’s because you fix the spacing by making a storyboard with saw kerfs centered wherever you want a dovetail. Insert Chest Mate’s indexing pin into the kerf and clamp both to your workpiece; then rout a tail. (You provide your own router bits and guide bushing.) Now, move the jig to the next kerf, and repeat. With the tails all cut, adjust the jig for the pin cut, clamp the same storyboard to the mating workpiece, and rout all your pins. (See a video demo at woodmagazine.com/videos.) It’s the ultimate variability at an affordable price.
