Make A Dovetail Template

Dovetail Box

This is nothing more than a blatant copy of the Dovetail Marker shown in "Modern Practical Joinery" by George Ellis pages 65 to 67. It's a perfect quick and easy template and is readily made from scrap hardwood. I hope the video shows accurately enough how to make one. After making it I had to take it for a quick test drive.

Not too bad although I feel the proportions need some tweaking. Next up, will be about how I cut my Dovetails.
