Description:  Class will show how to use the Guild’s 24″ Leigh D4R Pro dovetail jig to make Full Dovetail and Half Blind Dovetail joints.  Class will also use a Leigh Super 12 jig (loaned by a member) which is very similar and operationally almost identical to the D4R Pro.

The shop has a full assortment of Leigh dovetail router bits; the class will explain how many of these are used.  The shop also has templates for Leigh Isoloc templates, however, these will not be addressed in this class.  Likewise, the D4R Pro has the ability to make finger joints and sliding dovetails which will not be addressed in this class
