Dovetail Guide Review 'F&C Magazine'

This months Furniture and Cabinetmaking magazine carries a review of magnetic guides which includes a page on my Dovetail Jig written by John Bullar

John used my guide with a narrow bladed English style saw, completing the cut by dropping the saw guide down so that the magnet was against the side instead of the top. This seemed to have worked very well and I'll add this technique to my repertoire.

The Veritas Dovetail guide was also reviewed and whilst considered accurate was also thought to be rather slow and rigid in the way it worked. It is also more than twice the price!

The review above speaks for itself, if you would like a PDF of the whole article please e mail the Editor Derek Jones at

  1. Very cool refurnish. I agree, the furniture looks great in it's natural state. And it's a bonus that it was your furniture from your youth.
