If you are only interested in traditional dovetails (and by no means is there anything wrong with that) then read no further. But if your options are open to other possibilities consider the Kehoe Jig. It is a different twist on dovetails. You basically cut the dovetail into the assembled joint and then add a dovetail shaped key similar to using splines. But the there is a slight taper to the cut so the key strengthens and locks the joint. It looks like a traditional dovetail but also allows for other appearences if you vary the wood for the key again similar to dark splines on light wood.

They are a great little company and stand by what they make, and they are made in the USA. Check them out.
