Crucible Dovetail Template

Item: CT-DT

£78.95 inc VAT


Product Description

The Crucible Dovetail Template marks out dovetail joints – both the tails and the pins – and allows you to easily and accurately lay out the angled and straight parts of the joint. This template marks out the two most common dovetail slopes, 1:6 and 1:8 (9.5° and 7.1° respectively).

This solid steel template is based on a discontinued version from Woodjoy Tools. We contacted the designer, Glenn Livingston, to obtain his blessing for our tool, and he receives a royalty on every one sold.

Unlike the original, the Crucible Dovetail Template is milled from one piece of steel, which ensures a perfect 90° at the corner. (While this might seem wasteful, all the excess is recycled.) The tool measures 5/8" x 1 11/16" x 3". The angled sections of the tool are long enough to mark out tails in 1 3/8" stock. The straight section of the tool is long enough to reach fully across two 3/4" thick boards (for those who gang-cut dovetails). There's also a handy hang hole, just like on the original.

The Crucible Dovetail Template is made in Kentucky, USA.

Customer Reviews

By Jon on 21st March 2024
"A small, very nicely made 1:6/1:8 dovetail marker that is sturdy, functional and a pleasure to use. Drilled with a hole to hang it from but will readily stay put to a magnet if you prefer to store it that way. Costly but will last for generations and is more refined than the widely available wooden or aluminium dovetail markers ( even though they will do an equal job at much lower cost). If you regularly hand cut dovetails and are willing to pay a premium for quality kit this won’t disappoint."
