Maybe my eyes are not good, but I really cannot read the copy that you posted.

It's not your eyes. I just kept it small because of forum rules on picture size. It's more about the image in the picture.

That would look really nice, a bit of a challenge with the curve I'd bet.

I've seen it but I've never done it. Wouldn't be all that much different from regular through dovetails.

What I want to see is the two curved sided through dovetails the text alludes to!

Some more steps

These steps are from "The Art of Woodworking Vol. 09 - Handbook of Joinery." I bought the whole series of Ebooks. I really like the pictures and simplicity. They use basic tools that even beginning woodworkers have and teach how to make the needed jigs. Great stuff.

The pictures I included explain the steps. I don't want to put too much here because I don't know how much I can share. haha. If you like it go buy the books. They're awesome.

I looked for the two curved sided through dovetails in the book and couldn't find them :-/ I'm curious how they would look too. I can't wait til my dado blades come so I can try this technique. It would make my jewelry boxes look sweet.

Well, that just seems like cheating to me hand cut dovetails and then use a table saw!?

I think I would cut tails first and scribe the curve then to do it by hand.

Yes it's "Time Life, The Art of Woodworking Vol. 09 Art of Joinery." I picked up the 20 Vol set from my Grandpa. I have slowly been begging him for his woodworking stuff. He has so much stuff. He says I'll never get his ShopSmith. He says he's gonna be burried with it.
