At the risk of sounding like a killjoy, am I the only one who thinks that it is only a triumph of technology over aestheticism? I think it looks hideous.
Trad dovetails would suit the piece infinitely better, would they not?
You are not alone there - I can't say I'm much taken with any of the Leigh isoloc non-dovetail joints - the only ones that may have some merit are the Bears Ears when used on something for a Teddy Bear besotted niece.
Those Incra double dovetails in contrasting woods start to look a bit tacky once you've seen a few of them as well IMHO.
Steve beat me to it. I think the isolock stuff looks hideous and somewhat artificial. A technical solution looking for a good use. Traditional dovetails would look great. Hidden dovetails would also look great...I guess Leigh has yet to find a way to do hidden isolocks.? More traditional joinery ( frame and panel) would add to the piece aethetically.
I'm another in agreement, I think they would look just right on a kids project like a toy-box or something, but on a traditional piece, they look all at odds, hidden dovetails would have been my preferred choice.
