Looks nice! Those are a pain in the ass to make. Are you using the incra system?

Not an incra system. A 24 inch Leigh Super jig

Was working on one, hand cut using a magnet guide so I could perfectly place the cuts. Still a huge PIA. It can be done, it just doesn’t walk up to with hands raised and surrender. Quite a bit more measuring and layout over a regular DT.

In comparison, a lot easier doing finger joints on an I Box. And that includes the 1/8” kerf, lol.

I did a inlaid dovetail box with a magnet guide and hand saw. Then chiseled them out.

Have your say...
