Ken…these are the videos that I used when I first tackled half blind dovetails. Thanks for posting them on here. I can attest to the use of a card scraper to chop down the walls. It speeds us the process quite a bit. Lee Valley sells a set of three small scrapers and that is what I use to chop down the walls.
good trick Ken seen before not made lapped Dovetails in a long time.
Never used this method may give it a go next time around.
What I want to know who’s going to be the first to do some secret mitred Dovetails. he he
I think I tried once along time ago and did not come out very well.
Thanks Ken for the links. Your video links help tie me over until Paul’s next video.
The half-blind dovetail method seems very sound, but I could not help but be envious of his window and the view outside. I wish I had a window and a view over my bench. Now I stare at a poured concrete wall. Heheh.
Scott, my workshop is an unused room in my flat. I do have a window, but it is in the corner of the room. If I put my bench next to it I will loose the use of one end. I still have a lot to sort out in the workshop, but every day is a step closer.
You will have to make a window frame buddy, have some nice views painted on the glass, and put a light behind. HaHa only joking 😉
