Our dovetail jig produces something different - a tapered spline that creates the strongest joint in the industry we believe. We'll be here if you ever want to try it.

How about showing us some of your projects in the showcase when you use that Porter Cable . . . . they make great jigs for making traditional dovetails, and their jigs produce excellent results!

Nope, I am not a router guy really, I actually shy away from it when I can...but for something like this that took just a few minutes it would just be beating my head against the wall to do it any other way. (it would have took forever, and I would have screwed it up by hand )

The e-mail was tongue in cheek, but yea one was sent to let him know I had other plans...but his "stupid jig" sidetracked me again, so I was playing with it instead of sorting and stacking lumber (which in all honesty the stacking lumber is not too fun, so a diversion was cool)

Texas Timbers....

those pixs in "my gallery" are mostly my grandfather's work [only the big woods like corner unit, wide wall stand, cherry hutch or whatever you call it etc etc.. the grandfather clock is the lone exception - that was grandfathered in to me].

Feel free to ask me about any of the pixs. As Daren pointed out earlier he believes some of the woods are mixed [example the chearper wood in the back and the nicer woods in the front like Pecan]

I do have this nice things in my house.

among sharing with my family when my father died I chose the things my grandfather made as opposed to a new sofa or new deskstation with p/c for instance.

Hey Texas, I have only used the PC jig a handfull of times. I've made 2 boxes with it but only took pictures of one of them. Here's some pics of the box. It was my first box EVER so be easy on me. These pics don't have a good shot of the dove tails but I'll be sure to get some good shots next time. I made these before joining this forum and never really thought anyone would really wanna see anything I hade made. Also, I only have the blind DT jig right now but hopefully one day I will get the through tail jig.

very nice Jeremy! Very nice indeed. With a first-effort like that I expect to see some works of art coming out of your shop in the not-so-distant future . . .
