Do home made wood jigs work for cutting dovetail joints with the
router? I wanted to make a box but didn't want to spend money on a
aluminum jig but I want to cut them with my router? Any suggestions,
IIRC either WoodSmith and or ShopNotes have the plans for making a DT Jig.
That said, you will more likely spend more money and time building your own
jig than on a house brand cheap DT jig. House brand DT jigs tend to not
have the frills but they do work and the results can be as good as those
achieved with the $500 jigs. I used a Sears Craftsman for many years before
going to the Leigh.
