Topic tags/keywords: joining sliding dovetail technique jig tip

Hey LJ’s,

I am looking for a good site or youTube video on cutting sliding dovetails. I intend to use non-powered hand tools. Tommy Mac showed instructions for a small ramp fixture for cutting tails for the face of the drawer dividers on his toolbox, but I wonder if someone has developed the technique beyond that. There may also be other techniques that I am unaware of. All help, advice, links, references and encouragement appreciated.

One of the best I’ve seen is on the Heritage WW’ing on

I think angle block is probably the best way to go on the show surface.
