My thanks to all who viewed the two videos I made on flattening the workbench , and applying the finish to the flat bench top .

I have started something new – please let me know how you like it: I have posted the first video, Introduction to the Leigh D4R dovetail jig . I will be posting the videos showing the procedures to make through dovetails, half-blind dovetails, and sliding dovetails.

I will also be posting the full video series of the Leigh Super Jigs dovetail jigs, and also of the templates for all the dovetail jigs, on my blog. I will follow up with videos on the FMT, and the vacuum systems available for them.

Please let me know how you like the series. Many thanks to all!

Looking forward to more installments. I am learning to cut some dovetails by hand, but ultimately, the machines willl need to come into play.

You might be interested to look again. I have added two videos, one on Through Dovetails on the D4R , and one on Half-blind dovetails .

I will be adding some more on the Super Jigs line in the next couple of weeks.
