    Who does inlaid dovetails?

    1. If you do, which jig do you use?
    2. What type of router do you use: Fixed base router, or plunge router?
    3. Why do you use the type of router you use?
    I look forward to your replies.

    I haven't done any Al, so I can't answer your question. Are you referring to those like in your avatar? I have heard them called bowties. I would like to know how to do them for future reference though. Maybe someone will chime in and help!

    Thanks, Ed. That is the reason I was asking. I am planning to do a tutorial when I work on the project for which I made the little box prototype that Ned mentions.

    I wondered if this type of tutorial would be helpful at all.

    Al, with 500 members on the forum, I am sure there are plenty of novices like me that would benefit from a tutorial! I wish we could have a library link that tutorials could be posted in! Please post away!

    I would definitely like to see a tutorial on the inlaid dovetails done by you Al. I saw your post the other day on the WWA and want to say congrats on the being added to Leigh Jigs web site, projects display page.
