I thought I was never going to get done making all these drawers and pull outs. There were 14 drawers and 22 pull outs, all made with my Keller dovetail jig, I need to get something faster if I keep making this many at a time.

I echo the above. Very nice fit on both. Must be difficult maintaining your focus while doing this many items. In any event I am looking forward to see the finished project. Thanks for sharing.

You sure did a fine job on all those drawers.

Have you got a photo of the jig? I like through dovetails but my jig only cuts blind ones.

Cheers, Jim

Haven’t heard of a Keller jig before but it sure makes a nice tight joint

Here is the Keller Dovetail Jig, (kellerdovetail.com) I added some guides to mine for repeating cuts, it’s an awesome jig that does thru dovetails, I think the thru tails look nicer then half blind, just my opinion, they also have different sizes and jigs made out of aluminum also. I’ve had this jig for over 15 years and it held up great. I would highly recommend it.

Thanks. I like the idea of that bearing right on the bit for smooth running in the jig!

I’ll have to look into one!!

cheers, Jim

Wow. Great job. I have the Porter Cable jig, and just got done making 5 drawers with half blind. I won’t complain about the time it took, you made WAY more, and you made these look great!! (I really hate sanding the pins and tails flush. Even with a little mismatch, it takes awhile. I guess I just hate any kind of sanding, lol.)

You can’t rush quality, and those look awesome! If you really want to upgrade, and plan to use it a lot so the set up remains fresh in your head, get the Leigh dovetail jig.

Have your say...
