Hand-cut dovetails can be tricky at first, so anything you can do to eliminate marking errors will improve your joints.

One of my favorite marking tools for dovetails is the Woodjoy Precision Dovetail Template. This simple and elegant layout tool allows you to mark both the straight and angled lines of a dovetail joint with one square. Switching between a try square and a sliding T-bevel to mark a dovetail joint is a royal invitation to error.
