Angled dovetails

Hi fellas,
I am working with cherry burl and zebrano (zebrawood) making a cocktail table and two round stools with backs. I want to fasten the back rest for the stool at 100 degree angle using dovetails. Any tips on layout and strength?

Hi Sean,


Is this for a router jig or with hand tools?

Thanks for responding.
Just hand tools. I am plenty comfortable with them and would have more control for this particular operation. The stool caps are solid cherry burl 1 3/4 " thick. I simply want to dovetail the zebra-wood stool back on so the over all angle is 100 degrees. So It would be a 10 degree angle in addition to the 90 degree corner.

Cool, I've never made a router dovetail before - I can help on hand tools.

Cut your angle on the end of the board s first. After that its surprising easy. Everything gets skewed a bit but nothing to spend any time thinking about. Once you get started you'll find it works itself out ad you go. Work exactly ad you would for a 90 deg angle.

Great advice. Wanted to get a boost before I cut into the burl, there not exactly easy to come by, though I have many they take quite a long time to dry out.

Much appreciated.
