    If this is an important project to you, spend a little bit of time and learn how to hand-cut French dovetails.  It is not difficult and once you are proficient is almost as fast. 

    Plus, they look sooooooo much better than the stock clunky ones using
    some sort of router jig.
    Thanks baits, I knew you’d come around for us!
      Are you talking about a sliding dovetail for the corners? Unless you are looking top down you can’t tell. 
      Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure it’s strong, but it doesn’t look too complicated, which is what some people like.

    Well, the jig came in, also bought a new collet for one of my routers. I’m starting to get it dialed in, scrap plywood first. A blind dovetail.
