Topic tags/keywords: round dove tail

Something like this? At school we make rounded dovetails with a CNC program.

Yes there are. Most of the early router dovetail jigs would only cut round dovetails.. I have never known of anyone hand making them. Most production furnature that has dovetail drawers have round pins and tails.

Thanks. I guess I meant the router bit itself, so I could use an Incra fence on a table to make them. Not a straight bit with a jig – although some of those look interesting.
