Glad you like it, guys, thank you for the kind comments.

As it happens, I’ve just been sent a commercial model to review for British Woodworking magazine. Mine is better! :D
Well let me clarify that. The commercial model gets 10/10 for build quality, but it relies on the user having a particular router table insert (or being able to drill and tap to CNC precision), there is no guarding or chip collection facility, and the peg is rather high, so there is a minimum stock thickness of 12mm, which is a bit thick for a delicate little jewellery box, for example.
On the plus side, it comes with three different joint templates, 6, 10 and 12mm, whereas mine does only the size it is made for.
On the whole, I’m pretty pleased with this and if I made it again, I don’t think I’d change anything. Have a go!
