Rockler Dovetail Jig:
Cutting beautiful through and half-blind dovetails is fast and easy with our new and improved dovetail jig! Rockler's exclusive one-piece stop gives you the perfect offset every time for dead-on dovetailing accuracy. And our new preset template guide allows for quick initial setup for 1/2" to 3/4" thick stock. Jig will cut half-blind dovetailed joints from 1/2" to 1-1/8" thick and full through dovetails from 3/8" to 3/4" thick. Accommodates stock up to 11" wide. Requires router with 1/2" collet.


  • 8mm diameter bits are 25% larger than typical 1/4" bits, reduce chatter and fit all existing Rockler dovetail jigs
  • Preset template and fence locations clearly marked for standard thickness stock
  • Clamping bars include abrasive surface to grip stock and prevent slipping
  • Depth gauge on template for setting dovetail bit height for half-blind joints

Rockler Dovetail Jig Dust Collector:

You don't have to spend hundreds of dollars to get dust collection with a dovetail jig. Our revolutionary new dust collector eliminates virtually all the dust created when cutting dovetails. It easily attaches to Rockler's Dovetail Jig and a shop vacuum or dust collection system to provide you with a clean cutting area and safe working conditions.


  • Easily attaches to Rockler's dovetail jigs
  • Built-in 2-1/4" port fits most shop vac hoses (not included)
  • Sliding baffle directs the dust collection to where the dovetails are being cut
  • Sweep brush adjusts to provide a complete seal for stock thicknesses of 1/2" up to 1-1/8"
  • Contains the dust while allowing the bit to travel through without damage
  • Two extra long 4" knob posts make adding your dust collector shroud easy

Works very good
I am fairly new to woodworking and just used this jig. After sending a little time setting it up I just made 8 drawers and they came out great. The dust collector is a bit cumbersome but works good. I am very happy with it.

Great purchase well worth it
Very impressed with this jig So far it is working as expected I’ve had a little difficulty fine tuning it but I think I am getting the hang of the grace of God with more practice I will be a pro.

Woodworking Experience:
Take your time to set up and it makes beautiful dovetails. Set up takes awhile but instructions are good. Set it and forget it. One thing I learned the hard way is a 3/4” wood is not created equal. Definitely use a strap of the wood you are using. I my case I used cheap pine to set it up to find out the hickory was 1/16th thicker. It will show in your joints. It is that precise. Vacuum attachment is awesome. Works great. Had a lot over fun with it. Can’t wait to do the next project

Woodworking Experience:
Recommended Purchase
I purchased this item with no experience in dovetail joinery (my kit included the dust collector - I did leave a review for that item separately). I was able to unbox, set up, and create my first dovetail joint within an hour (not including prepping the stock). The instructions could be somewhat better, but given attention to detail, this jig gave me quality joints very quickly. Very few difficulties.

Woodworking Experience:
A great buy for the money.
Much easier to set up than my old jig.

Faster than my old jig because of the cam clamps.

The dust collector is a blessing. My shop is much cleaner and my work proceeds faster because I don't have to clean after each dovetail set.

As I am making 24 drawers with each corner dovetailed, this jig is definitely increasing my throughput.

I am very pleased and satisfied with this jig.

Great jig
While it has a bit of a learning curve, once you get some practice with scrap/etc., it's a very handy jig to have around. I did lose one of the springs when adjusting it, and Rockler responded in quick fashion to replace, gratis. It's not a Leigh, but it's also in a far lower price class. I'm sure one of these days I'll finally make the jump up, but for now I have no real reason to as this does everything I ask of it.

James A on Feb 16, 2020
Anyone have an issue while doing through dovetails with the interaction between bit and guide bushing? There is no physical way to set the cut depth correctly. The bit always digs into the guide bushing, for 1/2 stock material
BreckBeard B on Jun 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't know about yours, but mine didn't come with any instructions at all. I'm having the same issues (plus some... new to this tool). In my first attempt, I've now damaged one of the templates, and probably a router bit. Some simple instructions would have been very appreciated.
Total noob at woodworking here. I'm trying to figure out what parts go with what other parts. What I have is a router and a router table. What do I need to buy to ultimately make the cool isoloc wave, clover, etc joints (after lots of practice)? I wanted to use the table router with RTJ400 but it looks like that doesn't work with the fancy templates. It looks like I need the DR Pro jig and the templates (sold separately, of course). I went to a Rockler store, but the guy I talked to kind of blew me off.

Leigh D4R Pro 24
Leigh D4R Pro 24" Dovetail Jig w/Accessory Kit

It's been nearly 2 years since I upgraded to the Leigh Jig system. When I purchased my system, they provided very thorough instructions in both print and video formats. If this is your first dovetail jig system, you're walking right to the Rolls-Royce of them all (in my opinion). Leigh has some unique features incorporated into their system that can make dovetailing a much more satisfying experience for beginners and professionals alike. Dovetail jigs are primarily designed for hand held use only. One should have a fair amount of experience operating, maintaining and caring for a hand held router before attempting dovetail routing. I won't assume your experience level, and only mention it for the sake of safety. I have the D4R system which will accept the unique templates you have interest in. I happen to own the "clover" template, but have yet to use it. Leigh seems to be good about giving complete information about all necessary bits and guide bushings when purchasing their accessories. Whatever brand of jig you ultimately land on, this is a craft that will take some practice and patience to master, but it's well worth it. There is no substitute for a tight ffitting drawer joint that could out live your grandchildren! Hope this helped. Remember, safety first.

Which two templates are included? Can I do through and half-blind dovetails (as well as box joints) right out of the box, or will I need additional templates?
David S on Feb 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This jig is not recommended for box joints. It includes templates for doing half blind dovetails and through dovetails.
What router would you recommend with this jig?
David H on Feb 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have a Bosch router so I had to buy the guide bushing plate to use the Rockler jig. It works fine that way. The Porter Cable 690 series doesn’t need the guide bushing plate but as David stated you can use about any router
Good Afternoon, several of the comments suggest that this is not compatible with certain routers (Bosch was listed specifically). Has anyone out there been able to confirm this? I am wanting to get the Bosch 1617 combo but do not want to get something that will not work with this kit. Also, I see it comes with a 1/2" to 8mm collet adapter, is this all I need to use these bits on the router I choose? Thank you, Drew
Andrew H on Feb 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Not sure. I had a Dewalt router I used with it and it worked great.

Does this jig support the Festool OF 1010 EBQ router?
Jan H on Apr 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: HI Jan I am sure your router will work very well using the Rockler's Dovetail Jig. With the smaller base on the router works the best. You will enjoy this Jig. Rob
Will the 8mm shank bits fit in a Makita 1/4" shank cordless router, or with the router's optional 3/8" collet? Thanks.
William H on Sep 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This requires a router with a 1/2 inch shank.
Are replacement templates available?
FRANK R on Aug 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: can buy the replacement through Rockler.
Do I need a guide bushing router plate?
Gerry on Jun 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: My experience was that the guide bushing provided with the dovetail jig fit very nicely on the standard plate on the bottom of my Porter Cable router.
how wide stock will this jig cut?
Charlie J on Apr 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 11" See all details online at rockler
one review said need adapter for Ryobi router ,have Ryobi with 1/2" collet . do I still need adapter? thanks tom
tom z on Feb 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No Tom the jig comes with everything you need. It is a great jig.
I am having trouble keeping the dovetail bit secure in the router. I have tried three different routers, cleaning the bit shank and the collet. Could it be that the guide bushing is preventing proper seating of the bit in the collet? I don’t have trouble using the router for other applications only with the dovetail jig. I have already destroyed one bit!
Barry R on Jul 10, 2019
,Is there a issue of using my router and router bushings and bits, instead of using the bits and router bushings that come with the Jig?
Frank on May 24, 2019
Is there a list as to what routers this will fit?
