THROUGH DOVETAILS

The through dovetail has a look that is visually appealing, especially in boxes and chests.
NOTE:
For miniature through dovetails, use the 4215
accessory kit.
Cut both the pins and tails in the vertical position.
Cut the tails first.
Use two routers (if possible) - one for the pins and
the other for the tails - to make the process quicker
and easier.
If you are using the 4210 dovetail jig, you will need
the 4213 accessory kit to make this joint.
