Dovetail Groove and Spline
(Raleigh, NC, USA)
Much like the poster above I have a similar wood related question.
I am working on a historic home and I have to use wood for the frames of my screen on the porch. I was thinking of routing a 1/4" dovetail and using spline. What type of spline and diameter would you recommend? The router width at the shank is 1/8" and the widest part of the dovetail is 1/4" at the bottom. Would T spline be more secure and would it fit? Or should I use another type of spline? I'll be using low visibility nonmetallic screen. The one concession the historic district allowed was not using metal.
