Paul uses a knife to transfer the layout from the dovetail. Then the recess can be cut, paying careful attention to remove the correct sections. The final fitting is key, and ensures that the joint is tight and square. We can then move onto laying out the mortice and tenons on the crossmember, transferring the layout from the storyboard with a knife and square.

    Love the close-up shots, I’ve been wishing there were more in-close views of the chisel and kinfe-wall fractions apart … would be helpfull with saw-sharpening as well. I has been going to suggest a GoPro in close.
