Essential Tools for Dovetailing.

If you can't see what you are doing then you can't cut accurate dovetails. A good task light and reading glasses are essential for me. Even if you don't use reading glasses you should try some, the weakest lens no1 will give a small magnification which is very helpful.

Of course having good quality sharp tools is also very helpful!


  1. Love those Blue Spruce chisels David, one day !!!

    1. Hi Simon, I'm surprised you haven't got some already! All the best, David.

  2. I should have got a set before he stopped doing African Blackwood. I doubt he is able to do cocobolo now either :-(
