Rising Dovetails

Question:
Does anyone have a site to go to that explains and shows some clear illustrations for rising dovetails?
I'm building a "German" Roubo Workbench in white oak....which I "inherited". I'd like to join the corners of the rim together and the legs to the rim with rising dovetails.
Thanks,
Nick

You are shouting... I can hear it over here.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

What is wrong with his text? I like the size. It is readable.

It is now readable, earlier it was 5 X that size. I posted at 3:49 AM, it was modified at 6:33 AM

Apologies to the able bodied

To the fellah who was offended by my disabilities:
Sorry-My vision and my hearing, are both extremely poor. I wear those glassses that look like "Coke Bottle Bottoms" (and wear two hearing aids). Forgot to resize the type after proofing the post. I walk with the aid of a cane as well. Us cripples don't like to inconvenience you folks with no impairments. Again, sorry if my disabilities offended you. Enjoy your day.

Way to go, guys. Run off a woodworker with a legitimate need for help. I just wish I had the experience and knowledge to help him...

Turning good wood into designer firewood on a daily basis.....

I never plan my days. "Premeditated" is a word Lawyers love to toss around in courtrooms.

You are giving the guy moral support, that counts for something.

The guy posted in a manner that made his post hard to read, he was made aware of it, maybe not delicately, but his question was also answered with a very good link.

Perhaps a reply with an apology and thanks would have been more appropriate than playing the disability card.

Hey if you you look up Roy Underwood or The Wood Wright's Shop on youtube you can find an episode where he builds a Roubo style bench with rising dovetails. Good luck and post pictures when you get started. Hopefully I'll be building a bench in a month or so.

It's not a problem. Some of the guys just didn't realize I re-sized the text. I sometimes edit a text even if some misspells a word. We also didn't realize you had a problem with your eyesight.

Is this the dovetails you are asking about? I have never seen dovetails like these before, that does make them look good.

Just a heads up, NikolaiB is one of our finest, he was severely impaired by an IED 15 years ago. He suffers much for serving in our armed forces protecting all of us. I for one hope he reads this and comes back to be a part of our forum.
