Here a tool that my Freind BIGRED recommended.
And it came from David Barron.
I want to say thanks to all the people from state of your shop post
For all the support on doing some woodworking.
And hand cut dovetail.
Again thanks all for possitive support.

Nice Job August, those are some fine looking dovetails. I have been practicing my DT’s and I know the frustration of getting them right.

Looks nice man. An alignment board is a fantastic thing for the arsenal.

What, no saw to be seen in any of the pics?

Great looking dovetails, especially since you cut them without a saw.
True hand-cut tails.

That’s really nice. But I must be the only one that doesn’t get how it works. Holding both boards doesn’t seem all that easy, so is the point to clamp the pin board with the jig in a vise then mark it from the tail board?

Looks nice. Is that a mahogany variant? I could really use one of these.
