In this blog I spend almost 40 minutes in four videos explaining how I cut dovetails. Since I give most of the explanations in the video, I will not repeat them in writing.
There are multiple ways you can use these videos:
1. See how somebody else is cutting dovetails and maybe get some idea how to improve your technique
2. Learn how to cut dovetails from scratch
3. Confirm some of the frustrations/solutions you have
Use the comments to give extra hints or talk about what works/does not work when you cut dovetails.
I will post a project with pictures of the final product (i.e.the hand-cut dovetails on the box).
(here it is: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/3897 )
I hope you enjoy watching the videos,
P.S. In case you are wondering, yes, it is still summer in Florida.
