I wanted to try out my new Leigh D4R Jig and decided to make a small recycling bin for under my desk. There’s definitely some learning to do before you use the jig, but in the end it made short work of these dovetails. I just threw some scrap pine together and I think the way the dovetails turned out speaks volumes for the jig. For some reason I was trying to make the pins and tails similar in size, next time I’ll experiment with the variable sized pins/tails that the D4R allows.
Bottom line, this box looks much nicer than the old cardboard box I used for years.
Thanks for looking, D
