  • Page 4: Background Information

    BACKGROUND INFORMATION The details for basic joints are found in the instruction manual for the 4210, 4212 or 4216 Dovetail Jig, along with information regarding the use of various router bits and/or template guides, and will not be repeated in this supplemental manual.

  • Page 5: Operation, Miscellaneous Techniques

    MISCELLANEOUS TECHNIQUES Using these techniques can simplify your dovetailing projects. USE A DEAD-BLOW HAMMER Use a plastic dead-blow hammer to join your workpieces together to help prevent the marring of wood (Fig. 1A). CHAMFER THE TAIL EDGES Chamfering the inner tail edges can make the joints go together easier and may prevent damage to the pins (Fig. 1B).

  • Page 6: Through-dovetails With Clamping Boards

    TEMPLATES MOUNTED TO CLAMPING BOARDS You can mount the jig templates to clamping boards and take the templates to the workpiece to make the joint. The benefits of this operation are: 1. You can maneuver a mounted template onto a large workpiece easier than clamping a large workpiece to the jig. This process allows you to join boards wider than 12"...

    CUTTING THE TAILS Step 1 - Clamp the tail board with the outside surface facing away from the clamping board (Fig. 10A). Step 2 - If the board is a width in 1" increments, (12", 13", etc.), center the edge of the board exactly between the two fingers of the template farthest to the left (Fig.

  • Page 10

    Step 7 - Unclamp the template, slide it down, and center the last cut between the two angled fingers and reclamp (Fig. 11D). Step 8 - Repeat STEPS 6 and 7 until the pins are cut across the entire board. Step 9 - Remove the pin board and check the fit with the tailboard.

  • Page 11: Half-blind Dovetails With Clamping Boards

    HALF-BLIND DOVETAILS WITH CLAMPING BOARDS You can mount your half-blind template that comes with the 4210 and 4212 jigs and the 4211 accessory kit to a board. This method, however, limits your workpiece width capacity to 8". SETUP Items needed to setup for the half-blind dovetails: Wood to make the clamping board parts Clamps 2"...

    Step 4 - Make the straight clamping block. If the workpiece is thinner than 3/4", you will need to modify the dimension (Fig. 15D). Step 5 - Make two thickness blocks the same thickness as the pin board. Drill a hole big enough for the wood screw to go through (Fig.

  • Page 13: Using A Router Table

    Slide the straight clamping block to the left so that it contacts the pin board (Fig. 16D). Hook the straight Step 4 - clamping block over the front and back of the main clamping board. Step 5 - Secure the pin board by clamping it between the offset and straight clamping blocks (Fig. 16E). Step 6 - Loosen the #10 wood screws, align the template lines with the line where the pin board and tail board meet, and retighten the #10 wood screws (Fig.

  • Page 14: Alternate Router Bits

    ALTERNATE ROUTER BITS You are not limited to using the router bits supplied with your jig. Other router bits can be used to produce a different look or to work with thicker woods. Using alternate bits can help you produce more advanced joints (inlayed dovetails, etc.).

  • Page 15

    If you have two routers, you will not have to go through the process of changing the bit each time you make a different cut. This method requires, however, two 3/4" OD template guides and two template guide locknuts, available from Porter-Cable. DOVETAIL BIT APP. DEPTH OF CUT 17/32", 7°...

    Two routers will make this job easier. However, this two-router method will require two 3/4" OD template guides and two template guide lock nuts, available from Porter-Cable. In selecting straight bits for these modified box joints, keep in mind the following: The sum of the diameters of the two straight bits must equal 1".

  • Page 17

    I.D. OF TEMPLET GUIDE Cutting a dado with a template guide that has an OD smaller than 3/4" requires two passes. Start on the left side. Keep the router toward the back edge of the dado slot, and cut to the right until you have completed the cut.

    CUTTING THE PINS Step 1 - Hold the pin board against the tail board and mark the edges of the tails on the end of the pin board (Fig. 32A). Shade in the areas on the end of the pin board where the tails will be (Fig. 32B). Step 3 - Cut all the pins (Fig.

  • Page 21

    Step 1 - Make a climb cut from right to left. Step 2 - Cut only between the fingers where you want the pins to be (Fig. 34A). Step 3 - Use the router to round over the ends of the cuts (Fig. 34B). Step 4 - The joint will hide any accidental excess material cut (A) Fig.

  • Page 22: Saw Kerf Allowance Method

    NOTE: For this method, you will need a spacer block equal to the thickness of the saw kerf, typically 1/8" on a standard saw blade. Also, make the boards wider than the final size of the box by the same thickness.

  • Page 23

    CUTTING THE PINS Step 1 - Clamp the pin board with the spacer on the left (Fig. 39A). Mark the pin the saw kerf will go through (Fig. 39B). (Use the tail board for comparison.) Step 2 - Step 3 - Cut the tails from left to right.

  • Page 24: Multiple Spacer Method, End-to-end Joints

    Once the box is glued and dried, separate the box lid and bottom with a table saw. MULTIPLE SPACER METHOD The saw kerf allowance method can be modified by using multiple spacers on the same joint to create more varied spacing of the pins and tails.

    The standard joint is shown is Fig. 42B and the end-to-end joint is shown in Fig. 42C. DOVETAIL END-TO-END JOINTS A dovetail end-to-end joint is a combination of a box joint and a half-blind dovetail joint. the workpieces are mounted to the jig in the same way as for a box joint. However, the router bit and bit depth are set-up for a half- blind dovetail.

  • Page 26: Wooden Hinges

    WOODEN HINGES A wooden hinge can be used to make hinged table leafs or hinged legs for a collapsible table. The hinge pins are normally are made of stainless steel, but you can use other materials, including wood for that purpose. 180°...

  • Page 27

    270° HINGES WITH A DRILLED HOLE Follow the previous directions for 180 ° or more range of motion. Cut the boards as shown in Fig. 46A. Fig. 46A 180° HINGES WITH ROUTER-MADE GROOVES When the width of the workpieces are too wide for a drill bit to make the hole, use this method.Two boards compose each hinge half.

  • Page 28

    270° HINGES WITH ROUTER-MADE GROOVES This method uses two pieces of wood glued together for each hinge-half. One of the pieces is very short. Step 1 - Use a router to make a half-round dado near the end of a board. Make the diameter of the groove equal to the diameter of the hinge pin, and the depth of cut half the diameter of the hinge pin(Fig.

  • Page 29: Angled Joints

    ANGLED JOINTS You can join boards at angles other than 90 procedure. OBTUSE ANGLED JOINTS The simplest of these angled joints is the obtuse-angled dovetail. In this joint, two boards are joined together at an ° angle greater than 90 This joint can be made with either the template mounted to the base of the jig or to a clamping board.

  • Page 30: Cutting The Tails

    Cut the end of the tail board according to the instructions in the drawing (Fig. 53A). You can make these cuts on a table saw with the blade beveled (Fig. 53B). Set the miter gauge at 90° for the first cut, then use a tenoning jig for the second cut (Fig.

  • Page 31: Cutting The Pins

    Fig. 53D CUTTING THE PINS Step 1 - Cut the end of the pin board according to the drawing (54A). Step 2 - If you use the template mounted to the base of the jig and a 12" angled insert, remove the small front knobs, clamping rod and clamping U channel.

  • Page 32: Acute Angled Joints

    Cut the end of the tail board according to the instructions on the drawing (Fig. 56A). Steep angles or thin wood will make for a weak joint. Make this cut on a table saw with the blade beveled. Set the miter gauge at 90°...

  • Page 33: Slanted Side Joints

    SLANTED-SIDE JOINTS Two boards joined at 90°, with one board slanted to the side is known as a slanted-side joint. This method is used to make a box with the ends at right angles to the table, but with the sides tilted outward (cradles, planters, magazine racks).

  • Page 34

    CUTTING THE PINS Cut the pin board according to Fig. 60A. Step 1 - Step 2 - Hold the boards together and mark the pin board at the edges of the tails (Fig. 60B). Step 3 - Rotate the template so that the tapered fingers for cutting the pins is facing you. Step 4 - Mount the pin board with the outside surface facing away from the base of the jig.

  • Page 35

    NOTE: The instructions given here are for templates mounted to the base of the jig. However, this joint can also be made with templates mounted to angled clamping boards. You must use the angled clamping board for steeper angles. Use the following table for setting up your table saw for these cuts: DESIRED SIDE ANGLE 85°...

  • Page 36

    CUTTING THE TAILS Step 2 - With the angled insert attached to the base of the jig, mount the tail board with the outside surface of the board facing the jig and with the board centered between the fingers of the template (Fig. 64D). Step 3 - Align the template using the “Tails”...

  • Page 37: Inlayed Through-dovetails

    FITTING THE JOINT Fitting the joint is the same as fitting the standard dovetail. HINT: Use pieces of scrap wood the same thickness and species of wood to make test pin boards until the template is adjusted for a perfect fit. INLAYED JOINTS The 4200 series dovetail jigs will allow you to make joints with inlays of different colored wood for a very unique look.

  • Page 38

    CUT OFF THE INLAY BOARD After the joint has dried, cut the inlay board to an amount equal to the thickness of the inlay (Fig. 68B). If desired, you can cut off the small area shown from the remainder of the inlay wood (Fig. 68C). If left on, the completed joint will have an extra amount of material on the inside.

  • Page 39

    SETUP Select one set of dovetail bits from the table for Combinations for Half-blind dovetails with the pins and the tails cut separately in the section"TABLES OF COMMONLY AVAILABLE ROUTER BIT SIZES". Use the following table to determine the thickness of the inlay line: Dovetail Bit Set NOTE: If the thickness of the inlay line is very thin, you may have difficulty cutting the inlay correctly.

  • Page 40: Inlayed Box Joints

    MAKE THE SECOND JOINT The second joint is also identical to that described in the section on Half-Blind Dovetail Bits with the Pins and Tails Cut Separately under the chapter “ALTERNATE ROUTER BITS”. Use the board from the previous section as the tail board.
