I first saw in the WOOD magazine a fence used to to keep boards properly aligned for dovetailing (http://tinyurl.com/n6qdryk) and then a similar jig used by people for handcut dovetailing work, now popularized by British furniture maker David Barron which he sells as the dovetail alignment boards.
As I was taught, I have been using a vise with a bench plane to transfer the tails to the pin boards. I decided to build an alignment jig – the non-fancy version (i.e. not spending the time to make the jig with a dovetail joint); I used the Domino joint.
The Domino is an amazing joinery tool: the whole project, from start to finish, including glue drying, took an hour or so.
