I finally received my Veritas dovetail saw and decided to give it a go! It turned out better then I expected, but I can see how you would need to practice to get this skill down.

Good job. I haven’t learned this one yet. I want to though. I like the way they look.

Looks good, I learned how to cut dovetails by hand for years before I started using a router, it’s still nice when you need to make something by hand and that shows the true craftsmanship. Nicely done.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.

I have been thinking about getting that Vertias dovetail set – nice to hear others have used it successfully. I would be very happy if my first hand-cut dovetail looks this good! (watch for my post in the coming weeks)

Very nice first dovetail. How do you like that veritas saw? I use the veritas dovetail saddle markers regularly and love them.
