First I have to say that the credits for the idea go to David Barron.
It is so easy and very helpfull to use.
Used wood: Pine and Oak.
The dovetails are cut by hand.
Thanks for watching and comments are welcome.

Clever idea. I’m always finagling straight edges while moving things in the vice… something like this would work better.

Bas, Perhaps my first coffee of the day hasn’t kicked in yet but—I’m not sure what the dovetail alignment board is/does?
Whatever it is must work very well. Your dovetails are amazing!

It is a convenient way to line up the boards when marking boards for hand cutting dovetails. It wouldn’t have to be constructed by dovetail, but that seems appropriate.
Here’s a pic of one in action:
