Gifkins Dovetail @ Sydney wood show, Fri 23Jun—Sun 25Jun17 10.06.17


FRI 23Jun—SUN 25Jun17: Grand Parade, Sydney Showgrounds, Olympic Park, Homebush NSW

Col and Pam are again looking forward to the SYDNEY Wood show, to meet long-time Gifkins Dovetail enthusiasts, and to introduce newcomers to the pleasures of box making and small furniture construction.


Gifkins Dovetail makes the only Australian-made and owned jig. It’s a beautifully designed tool that delivers precise joints every time…dovetail and finger joints! The jig is designed to use on an under-table mounted router.

The standard jig package contains all you need to cut perfect dovetails or finger joints. You provide dressed, sanded and square timber and you’re ready to start!

No measuring! No fiddling! No fuss!


To demonstrate how easy it is to use the jig—each day of the show Col will make three beautiful boxes: a trinket box, a special jewellery box and a desktop box. The demonstrations will at 10.30am, 12.30pm and 2.30pm. He will also do joint demonstrations on request throughout the show.


The Gifkins Dovetail Box maker’s starter pack is still discounted to save you dollars. It has everything the enthusiast needs to start making boxes. The pack contains…

[1] a Standard Solo jig package with the template of your choice,

[2] Ultimate box maker’s cutter kit [with five cutters],

[3] one Bessey Kliklamp,

[4] one pair of clamp holders, and

[5] a demonstration DVD [dovetail or finger joint].

Normal retail price—$662—discounted by $47 to $615. A real saving!

Gifkins also discounts multiple template packages. They are available with any combination of dovetail or finger joint templates to suit your requirements. WE ALSO HAVE A RANGE OF ACCESSORIES to support the box maker: router and router table, clamps, books, DVDs and spare parts.


While you are visiting our seminar and retail area—check out our Jumbo jig. The longer jig body is ideal for making larger boxes, household items and furniture projects—both commercial and domestic! The productive area between stops on the block is up to 480mm.

We make four templates: two dovetail [A and B] and two finger joint [F5 and F15] across two timber thicknesses. The Solo package contains the jig body with stops, the cutters to match your template, along with the instruction manual.

See ‘Jumbo packages’ on the website for further details.

Please call us before the show, if you have a special order, so that we can bring it with us to Sydney.
