    Re: Dovetail Jig

    David, will the finished piece have to up any stairs or through a narrow hallway? Just trying to work out the logistics of transporting that piece.
    I like making things. I have a wood shop at home. I am a terrible carpenter but I love doing it. Raymond - Charlotte, NC

    Oh, yes, I have thought about that and made the size accordingly. My wife's office has a double door and it's right inside the front door, so it shouldn't be too bad.

    That is where parallel clamps shine. Clamp on to the long boards then clamp the short boards on to the clamps that are clamped to the long boards. Also can just clamp a 2x4 to the short board then clamp it to the long board. Lots of ways to get around.

    I guess never having the right tool made me always look at different ways to get things done.

    Looking back through the thread I see I never complimented you on the great design and beautiful wood.

    So, there it is...

    Re: Dovetail Jig

    Thanks Mike! That means a lot as this is the first build for me not from a purchased plan.
