I have been practicing with the Incra Jig and made some boxes for friends. Kind of a random mix of wood – some hickory, some oak, some mahogany and some poplar. Nowhere near perfect yet, but I’m getting better each time.

Great work, hard to go wrong with Incra. Nice joints….

Those dovetails look amazing. They almost look fake. I mean that as a compliment. Great work

Great looking. When you actually reach perfection, let us know. You’ll probably be the only one here.

Well, I enjoy it. Depending upon what model you get, the price can be fairly modest and it certainly makes this kind of work much easier. I have a Porter Cable Omni for “regular” dovetailing, but the Incra is wonderful for smaller projects and fancy exposed joints. Next time around I am going to try some of their other designs.
