Making boxes with dovetailed splines without a Kehoe jig #1: Dovetail spline jig and splines

06-16-2010 11:06 PM by Toolz | 9 comments »

The first thing I did was to make a simple jig for cutting the dovetail in the mitered box sides to receive the splines I tried cutting the splines on my router table with a 1/2” 14 degree dovetail bit I used to cut the dovetail slots in the box side.

There are 14 rings to this vase and a total of 416 segments that are fit and glued together using Titebond 2 yellow glue. If the vase is going to hold water as well as flowers then an opening is necessary. As you can see a 1-7/8” forstner bit is being used to drill out an opening to allow for a glass vial to be inserted. The vas...
