Here is a dovetail alignment board made by Ed from the Netherlands, it looks a very good job. It is made from Siberian larch with an oak fence. The alignment board is a very useful jig and a great first project to get used to the magnetic guide. The dovetails are quite chunky in the American style, that's the beauty of my guide, you choose the spacing. Ed bought a few of my tools at the European Woodworking Show, it's great to see woodworkers from other countries.
I also met Christine at the European Show, there don't seem to be many female woodworkers so it was good to meet her. She is very pleased with her magnetic guide and has done a fine job with these two boxes. Christine said the dovetails took her half the normal time and turned out a lot better, which is great to hear.
