The Kehoe Dovetail Jig is a patented woodworking tool used to make dovetail spline joints. Whether you are a full time professional woodworker, or a dedicated woodworking hobbiest, the Kehoe Dovetail Jig is an easy-to-use tool that will be a welcome addition to your woodworking creativity and versatility for years to come. The strongest possible joints are created using our simple, yet elegant method of joinery. The 1° taper along with the corresponding finger slots are what separate our dovetail jig system from all other dovetail jigs and tools on the market.
Properly used, our tapered dovetail spline is as strong, and in some cases stronger than traditional dovetails. Some say they are more attractive and more versatile – but try cutting one! They are notoriously difficult to create by hand, and nearly impossible to incorporate the all-important 1° taper.
The real beauty of our tapered dovetail spline jig is in its simplicity. Our system lets you make a stunning array of joints right out of the box. Don’t get us wrong though, we aren’t bashing traditional dovetail jigs. We love traditional dovetails and own many of the jigs that are available on the market today. Some we like, some we don’t. But comparing one traditonal dovetail jig against another doesn’t accomplish much, because in the end they all make the exact same looking joints as the other 99 competitors. When it comes to the Kehoe Dovetail Spline Jig there is simply no comparison.
Let’s face it, if you incorporate nothing but traditional dovetails in all of your projects, your woodshop is going to become a cookie-cutter dovetail factory no matter how many brands of jigs you have because they all do the exact same thing. Add something truly unique to your repertoire of joinery by ordering a Kehoe Dovetail Spline Jig today!
