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.

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.
