Using the Porter Cable 4212 dovetail jig George Vondriska demonstrates the guess-and-check process for gauging the depth of cut for your half blind dovetails. As a rule of thumb, George likes to remember too tight: too deep, too loose: too shallow. He teaches you how to adjust your depth of cut appropriately once you’ve made your test cuts.
