  1. Hard to justify a $250 jig to cut dovetails. While this was a very well done video I was hoping for a more economical solution. I guess problem solving is half of the fun of working with your hands.

  2. I would consider this manufacturing rather than craftsmanship. Setup the machine, press "On". Woodworking can be a strange hobby when the goal is to duplicate the precision found in items manufactured in China. Dovetails seem cliché to me today.

  3. Yeah, but u have chip out on a lot of those tail corners just cut them by hand unless you had to cut 50 or hundreds of Dovetails. this type of thing does not promote craftsmanship

  4. me parece que wood magazine, con la fama que tiene bien merecida de calidad, incluya que el protagonista acuda a la protección auditiva sin considerar a los lectores con el ruido del enrutador que es excesivo. Por lo demás, es muy aleccionador el video.
