Topic tags/keywords: jig tip question trick padauk router joining carving

I finally had a chance to work on my writing desk and felt inspired to make the drawer’s face frame joints a through dovetails. I’ll post a pic or two when I get a chance, kinda hard to explain. But, I’m cutting the joint in two places, feeding a piece padauk 1 1/4×3/4 lengthwise through it on my router table. My tennons were already cut into either end of it, and it is/was the top face frame piece that runs the full length of the desk. When I cut them splinters went flying and it chipped out like crazy. I have one more piece of padouk to make it and am looking for pointers. Any at all would be much appreciated, Thanks.

You’ve probably long since completed this project, would you have any photos of the finished product?

Hi Jeremy,

The pictures don’t seem to work.
