I'm trying to figure out the best way to make clean dovetails joints using a router (maybe?). I've tried by hand, results were not so good. I got excited a while back and bought one of those porter cable router jigs. It kind of worked but chipped out great chunks of the dove tail when I tried to use it. That ended up a mess for me.
Now I was tempted by the incra router table and fence system which seems accurate at least. Someone showed me something called the woodrat which looked interesting at first but started to look a little hokey as the demo video went on.
I was all excited to get an incra table but then I thought, is this just going to chip everywhere like the jig? So I'm not sure the best route to go.
I'm a moderately experienced hobbyist, and I don't have a router table yet. About the most complicated thing I've built is a crib with mortise and tenon joints. I want to be able to make dovetails to make drawers and boxes.
