Dovetail SplinesPosted: February 22, 2012
This morning I had a bit of time in the shop after some of the usual homeowner fare. So I built this extremely visually engaging jig.
Not so much – but it works well at cutting dovetails slots across mitered corners.
Using the same dovetail bit, I can then make a spline piece to fill into these slots. The case is red oak. The splines are walnut.
The two dovetail splines are towards the back of the case. I straight spine will go towards the front, and the door piece will be cut away.
When these are dry I can finish cutting away the spline and sand it flush.
