Dovetail Course Complete

The results of two days hard dovetailing, four very nicely made, dead accurate dovetail alignment boards. We started with lots of practice cuts, followed by a couple of demanding practice joints before moving onto the alignment boards. The lovely quarter sawn oak proved to be very tough and quite brittle, adding an extra challenge to the work. A very enjoyable course and I'm looking forward to the next one.


  1. Hi David, really enjoyed spending a few hours in your workshop on Friday, let me know if you ever decide to run a plane making course! Cheers, John

    PS - I found a site devoted to WS planes, of which I have the No. 5 1/2 that took hours of sole flattening! Looks like they may have been produced during the 1940s. Not great quality but I'm determined to make it a user!
