Topic tags/keywords: jointmaker dovetail saw joint pro

I love the idea of this product but I just do not have a thousand dollars to put down on this machine. I figured it might be possible to make a version using drawer slides or dovetails and sone Osage orange. Anyone have any ideas?

And a video with all the parts you need to build one. It looks like it might a challenge.
