What is a Through Dovetail Joint?

A dovetail joint is made up of two boards with interlocking routed tails (like a dove’s tail) and routed pins, fitted together to make up a functional and decorative corner joint. A traditional type of joint that is often equated with quality woodwork.

The Leigh TD330 will allow you to make through dovetails in multiple sizes and on boards of different thicknesses. Few other dovetail jigs as simple as the TD330 offer a way to rout through dovetail joints this well. Perfect for drawers, boxes and so much more!

This jig is easy to use. The included e10 guide bushing guides the router with installed bit in and around the comb of the template to rout the dovetails. Truly versatile, it can be used on a router table, or by hand-held router depending on your preference or setup, providing quick and easy routing of through dovetails.

The TD330 is designed for use by woodworkers of all levels. All jig functions are detailed in the included fully illustrated user guide and video - shown here.

Once set up, you will be routing beautifully fitting through dovetails in no time! Take your woodworking projects to the next level of craftsmanship with Leigh.

Router Requirements

Handheld Router

What Router Should I Use? The TD330 is shipped with two 1/2" shank router bits. Leigh recommends a midsize router, from 1-1/2 to 2-1/4 HP with a 1/2" collet. This size provides great power to weight ratio. Fixed base routers are ideal because they have a lower center of gravity with handles mounted to the router base rather than the motor, as with plunge routers. However, if you are proficient with the use of a plunge router, it works just as well. When buying a router, also consider ergonomics, switch location, a good plunge mechanism and easy, accurate adjustment of bit height.

Adaptors for your Router - The TD330 requires a router fitted with the Leigh e10 guide bushing. Leigh offers a range of guide bushing adaptors to fit most common routers if required.

Router Table

Router tables are typically used with a bearing or fence, however, the Leigh TD330 is guided around a guide bushing mounted in the router table. Leigh eBushes will need an insert ring to fit to your router table or router plate. Check the images for specific measurements.

To fit the eBush to your router table insert plate, you need a 1-3/8" (34.9mm) diameter counter bore insert ring. Check with your router table or router plate (router lift) manufacturer, as to what adaptation, if any, is required.
