I’ve decided to work on small projects for a bit to improve my skills. So when the lovely wife got me a small bandsaw for my birthday I thought this jig would be a good first project. It’s based on the one on Matthias Wandel’s site (http://woodgears.ca/dovetail/bandsaw.html ), with a 10° angle.

I tried it out on some cherry scraps. The result was far from perfect, but a lot better than I’ve ever done by hand. I see a bunch of shop projects in my future while I work on my technique. A 1/8” blade might also help for finer joints.
