Long time no chat… ;)
Trying to get myself back into woodworking after a long absence. Thought I’d jump in with both feet and finally try using my Porter Cable dovetail jig to make some 15” x 15” x 15” boxes for my wife to replace some ratty cane covered ones we’ve had for years.
Can anyone point me at a decent tutorial on using a P.C. dovetail jig? What would be the best dovetail cut to use the first time I try this? I’d love to do a through cut so you can see the dovetail.
I don’t have a jig wide enough to do a 15” glued up board. How do you properly cut two board so the dovetail properly fit together after everything is glued up?
What would be the best thickness to use for floor boxes. 1/2 inch? I’ll be planing down some antique pine board for the boxes.
Thank a lot for the advice.
