I do hand cut dovetails. My main reasoning is because I wanted to learn them. Instead of spending $100 on a jig for my router, I instead invested that money into a quality dovetail saw instead. Another part of the reason is that I’m currently doing a fair amount of my woodworking in my apartment’s spare bedroom, so I’m forced to stick with hand tools :-P
