DS-1 Dovetail Saddle Square

The DS-1 Dovetail Square at one end has a fixed 1:8 ratio for making dovetails in brittle wood such as hard maple, kiln dried cherry, rosewood etc. This ratio is considered by many as the most elegant of ratios for combining function with beauty. The other end is square. which allows you to draw the 90 degree lines which begin at each end of the dovetail lines and continue down to the scribed line which determines the shoulders.

In the past you needed a sliding T-bevel and a square to accomplish this task. Our new squares eliminate the need for either of these tools. The T-bevel is the weakling of this group, a wonderful tool yes, but a major thorn if you happen to accidentally knock it out of position or worse yet, not realize you
have "adjusted" it until it is too late.
