The grip was rough cut with a hand held jig saw screwed to the bottom of a worktable (I don't have a...

That's the method illustrated in PTWFE here. You just have to make sure your pin distance is dead on.

I am of the same mind as Tom on drawer construction. Admittedly, I've never cut a dove tail but I have made finger joints. It can be time consuming, so if you are just looking to make some shop drawers sturdy and functional, why not use screws and but joints? I did that with a chest of drawers in ou...
