Topic tags/keywords: round dove tail

I there such a thing as “rounded” dove tail joints. I know does not make sense, but not sure how to explain. Like the joints between rubber floor tiles. Maybe duck butt joint is more like it? Like

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.
