Dovetail Alignment Board
Here's a very solid looking dovetail alignment board made by Terry who attended the recent course dovetailing. The oak is clearly bang on quarter sawn as you can see the medullary rays which means this should remain both stable and flat over the years. The low fence is all you need to register timber of any thickness and does not get in the way.
I do not like shipping the ones I make as they are both bulky and heavy. I had a request yesterday to ship one flat packed to Australia, but this does not get over the weight cost.
This is a great first project when you finish one of my guides and I would rather everyone made their own rather than buy them from me.
