Im 50 yrs. old. Finally got a house that I could start a workshop. I have very little experience. My only projects so far have been simple bookcases and a couple of work benches. I am hoping to gain more skill and training. I want to learn dovetails...I bought a used Incra system and the whole process is intimitating. Just an update...I ordered an Akeda Jig System thanks to the advice I've received here.

Thanks for the welcomes….So, who can advise on my dovetail fear. What system should I use, Incra, or should I get a Leigh jig?

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Welcome Kirk
I think you’ll love this site.
Re. your Q on dovetails. I have the Incra fence systems for both my router table and table saw and love them both. Take some time to get comfortable using Incra for dovetails, it I believe the most versatile system for doing decorative dovetails especially for smaller parts like boxes and drawers. I have the Leigh DR4 and have to admit I don’t use it much as the learning curve is much steeper. I even took a weekend class for Leigh system at Woodcraft and I still struggle with a good setup. I believe Leigh excels at larger projects like blanket chests. Of course you could be a traditional WW and cut them by hand.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…
