Had a strip of Narra wood 1/8 inch thick by 2 wide. Made a little dovetail marker dovetailed the 1:8 and 1:5 together.

It is 90 degrees small I am going to have a go with it, marking the angles.

Now that looks like a handy tool.

That should be handy. I have only cut dovetails by hand once and it definately gave me a respect for those who can do it well.

How’d you get a piece of narra? It’s endemic here in the Philippines but try as I might, I just cant source it through legal channels ;-)

It’s a very nice heirloom quality wood.
