Come along to the CANBERRA WOOD SHOW, to meet Col and Pam from Gifkins Dovetail. We will introduce woodworking enthusiasts and 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 dovetail joints every time. 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.
