Was asked to build a bookshelf and decided to try out my dovetail jig for the first time. Other than having to buy a new router for the 1/2” tool I feel it went well. I practiced one cut for each dovetail (through and half blind) then I did the project. The customer likes it and is going to paint it, That is why I used popular in the building of it.
