Berritt on Jan 10, 2022 5 out of 5 starsFirst try at dovetails and this made it so simple! Thank you!

HORACIO on Jul 4, 2021 5 out of 5 stars This jig is the best on the market. How this has not blown up all over YouTube woodworking video is beyond me. If you are like me, no woodworking experience, let alone cutting dovetails, or simply suck at hand-cutting, this is for you. This jig allows damn near perfect dovetails with very little clean up post cut. I wish that I could explain my lack of woodworking skills better than I am now, but this jig allows me to cut ‘em well. Read the written instructions and study the images (to explain the best placement for snug fit), and you should be fine. I use a gyokucho 372 pull saw and allow it to simple ride the cut down. Don’t attempt to angle it yourself. Just trust the jig. Get it! Stanon May 6, 2021 5 out of 5 stars - The Quality is great. Expectations were met. Just need a thin kerf saw.
Jerod on Feb 11, 2021 5 out of 5 stars - Best dovetail jig on the market and for a reasonable price!
Anthony on Feb 9, 2021 5 out of 5 stars -These jigs are fantastic. Never cut a dovetail before and my first try is really good. The jigs worked perfectly, the chiseling on the shoulders is the hard part. Took Papa’s advise and purchased the Lie-Nielsen tapered dovetail saw and it is amazing. Fits the jig perfectly. Some more sanding, a top and bottom and finish and my test project will be used for sure for something around the house. Thanks Papa for a great tool, super video and giving me the confidence to try something new.

Bruno on Apr 11, 2020 5 out of 5 stars - Exceptional product. Precise machinery and nice finish. Well-thought-out.
Spencer on Apr 5, 2020 5 out of 5 stars - This jig works great. First attempt at doing dovetail joints by hand and the box went together just fine. Watch the instruction video to take the rest of the guess work out. Any rough joints you see in the photo is due to my poor chisel job vs. the jig. Highly recommend!
