Dovetails

Filed under: Woodworking — jasony @ 9:59 pm

I’ve been reading about dovetails recently. At first, I thought the only way to get really nice looking dovetails was with an expensive jig. Happily, however, my woodworking friend Mark has shown me that it’s possible to get nice dovetails with a $30 hand saw and lots of practice. Since $30 < $400, I've decided to go that route. Been reading lots of pages tonight on hand cutting dovetails and I hope to get a good saw for Christmas.
