« Part 2: Slowly Getting There Part 3 of Dovetail Calculator series Part 4: The Devil is in the Detail »

Another update on the Dovetail Calculator giving you more options than ever before. It still isn’t perfect, but Ill keep working on it as requests are provided to me (and my fellow woodworkers have had a few). As far as I am aware all formulas are correct and numbers displayed on the illustration are accurate. Please let me know of you think any of them are incorrect as a lot of effort has gone into creating accurate numbers.

First Illustration is of the latest form: it is scrollable, as I have all the formulas to the right hand side and if you scroll down I have the list of things I’d like to do in future versions.

Again, when you hit calculate the Spreadsheet diagram gets updated. Move the form around so you can see the diagram.

Office 2010: https://app.box.com/s/guds8f3eqobt4c78qcnm

All files worked when I uploaded them, although there may be errors in the code I am unaware of (I’ll keep working on that side of things).

One guy at my work (he actually works in the woodworking department building ‘things’) said to me, ‘why are you making an application, why dont you just make the dovetails in the workshop’. I responded to him with – ‘Do you see any wood working tools / equipment in my office?’.

Enjoy!

-- I know what the tools are, I know what they are used for, now I just have to learn how to apply the fine art and start using them.
