Thank you for your welcome, Mads. I have enjoyed myself. I’m amazed how much my love for working wood increases as each year goes by. I lived in the USA for 23 years and taught woodworking through my courses to 3,500 Americans interspersed with other nationals from around the world. I have always taught from my background as a working craftsman and never as a teacher. In learning my craft I have worked with and researched just about every type of hand tool to find out what really works and get to the root of why changes were made. Many aspects that people involve themselves in are as a result of industrialising our craft for mass-manufacturing and not because it was better.

I cut these dovetails as a demonstration to a group to prove that, with practice, a man, any man or woman, can cut perfect dovetails to any size without laying them out, measuring them or using anything more than his eye to gauge the angles. This joint took me 6 minutes to complete from cutting to planing. The angles are exactly 1:7 ratio, I can cut them to many ratio aspects with my 50-year old dovetail saw by eye. They do vary if measured with a micrometer, but only by a tiny fraction. It’s this type of skill I have a penchant to pass on before my eyes grow dim and my hands unsteady.
