Dovetail joints are used to interlock two pieces of wood using a jigsaw-like link to join the workpieces at a 90° angle. Dovetail joints are made using a dovetail jig. Dovetail jigs are both manual and automated, where the device holds a piece of timber in a vertical position and cuts the dovetail joints with a router using a metal template for accuracy.
