Gifkins Dovetail makes the only Australian-made dovetail jig. It’s a beautifully designed tool that delivers precise joints every time. Use it on an under-table mounted router—no special fittings are needed. You provide dressed and sanded timber, two clamps, and you’re ready to start!

No measuring! No fiddling! No fuss!

 Our aim is to provide our customers with quality, Australian-made products, backed by friendly service and professional advice. We also conduct box making courses in our workshop in Coffs Harbour.
