If you’re looking for a quality dovetail jig to make your work look like it was hand cut, the Leigh D4R Pro is an excellent choice. It creates perfect joinery of all kinds- through dovetails, half-blind dovetails and sliding dovetails- without having to buy additional templates.
It also enables you to rout variable spaced through and half-blind dovetails, not possible with template jigs. And it comes standard with a two-function spacer to offset tail boards and rout complete joints in one pass.
The leigh dovetail jig is the most versatile and user-friendly dovetail jig on the market. It creates perfect joinery in minutes – through dovetails, half-blind dovetails, sliding dovetails and box joints (finger joints).
Infinitely adjustable one-piece fingers are easily positioned for any joint pattern, guaranteeing a half pin at each edge of the joint regardless of board width. Install the included cross cut fence, and the finger assembly becomes a sliding dovetail template to produce perfect sliding dovetails!
Sliding dovetails are used to make shelf-to-upright joints, breadboard ends and drawer dividers. They are also useful for making a wide variety of furniture carcasses and boxes, especially where strong, interlocking joints are required.
The leigh dovetail jig can be used with either a handheld router or a router table. It uses a clever guide bushing that pivots to change the fit of the joint. It also has little handles for control, which makes it easier to use.

All the jigs in this line include the Leigh eBush template guide bushing that allows easy and precise fit adjustment. This patented guide bushing can be adjusted clockwise or counterclockwise to change the depth of the bit and create a tighter or looser dovetail joint.
