Tony.....there are a lot of tools and aids out there to help a person make acceptable dovetails.....saws, chisels, marking knives, layout gauges, moxon vises, special goose neck lights, magnetic saw blade jigs, etc., etc.

But, the best aid of all is practice. Like anything else repetition.....repetition.....will equal better results. Think of the number of dovetails a Frank Klausz must have made in his career. Its really not all that amazing that he can cut dovetails as easily as he does.....and with such great results.

Keep practicing.
