Thanks guys! I’ve only hand tooled it so far lol I will be using a drill press in a future video… probably the next one where I actually do the half-blind dovetails…

I go with what’s easiest for me, and at the current juncture that’s mostly hand tools because that’s what I have, what I’m most practiced on, and have space for right now :-)
