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!
