Interesting video & point of view on cutting dovetails. I agree with you on tails first, with the same reasoning you expressed in the video. I find it much easier to achieved tight joints that way.

I prefer to cut pins first. Narrow dovetails are a lot easier to mark from the pins than the other way around and it’s easy to cut accurately because you save the lines. I started out cutting tails first and never got the accuracy I wanted. I am not touting this as the ‘correct’ way. Each method has it’s followers.

I will be looking forward to it. I enjoyed this video.
I have no earthly idea the first thing about hand cutting a dovetail. If I had to I could fail forward fast and learn. Cool video. We have always used a PC router and Akeda jig and now we use our CNC.
Thanks for the video Loren.
