Back about 20 or so years ago I remember making a dovetail jig as outlined in a magazine (probably Fine Woodworking) but cannot remember how to do it. The key to it was a pair of router bits (straight & dovetail) with top bearings that rode on the home made jigs. I used the technique to build a nice blanket chest which came out great and was a wedding present to one of my sons.
The spacing was whatever you wanted and the jigs were easy to build. One jig for the pins and one for the tails.
Anybody remember how this was done?
