Dovetail Course in Full Swing


Good vision is essential in cutting fine dovetails. Here Simon has a bright lamp as well as borrowing my Opti Visor for a bit of extra magnification.


Good technique from Clinton chopping out the waste on the tails.


A pair of  fine practice joints.
The brass face of a cutting gauge can create a lot of friction, things run much more smoothly with a lignum vitae face. Sharpening the cutters also helps!
