Joe, I wanted to update you. I was able to make my first set of half blind drawer boxes the other day and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed the process with the Incra over the dovetail jig. What a difference!

Now I understand the beveled rabbet for half blinds and the described approach is perfectly adequate.

Do you have any insight over recommended stock WIDTH? With my dovetail jig it’s inch plus 1/4” for the larger bit and 1/2 inch plus 1/8” for the smaller bit.

I ask because I pretty much randomly chose a template that worked great for the first drawer size but was incompatible with the second size. I struggled for a good 15 minutes before settling on another pattern for that. I’d like to get a better understanding and approach for selecting templates. I haven’t seen any material on that selection process from Incra.
