Straight out of the box, the UJK Universal Dovetail Jig gives you the possibility of producing six different joints, with unrivalled accuracy!
Six joints, unrivalled accuracy
Dovetails make very strong joints. However, the method of keying pieces of timber together by engaging tapered pins or tails into corresponding sockets can be a very time consuming task when done by hand. Plus, there's now a quicker and more efficient way to produce such joints thanks to the UJK Universal Dovetail Jig, which allows simple, quick and accurate joints with a router.
Half Blind Dovetail
Used primarily for drawer box construction, half blind dovetails show the pins and tails on one side of the joint, while remaining completely invisible on the other. This makes them ideal for fastening drawer fronts to drawer sides.
Frequently used in case work to connect shelves to side walls or between shelves in drawer dividers, sliding dovetails are deceptively simple joints to make using this jig.
As one of the strongest joints available, the through dovetail has many benefits. These include being aesthetically pleasing thanks to its interlocking capabilities and resistance to being pulled apart. Furthermore, it offers a large gluing area, however the joint will also hold together even without glue!
Ideal for making boxes and other solid cube shapes such as chests and carcases, precise comb or finger joints offer castellations with a very long glue line.
Useful for adding partitions into cabinets and bookcases, a groove/housing joint is a strong and reliable joint that's simple to make. A trench is cut into which the end of another component is inserted.
Corner Dovetail Rebates
Simple to construct, corner dovetail rebates enable mating parts to align easily and accurately. Furthermore, they create a larger gluing surface which provides a greater load-bearing capability than standard butt joints.
