  1. Is there any way we could get the measurements for the wood that is attached? I feel like I'd have a better chance of repeat-ability if I build it the same way.

  2. So with the making of this video you have just ensured that anyone with enough money and some practice can make a dove-tailed box, which means it is no longer really a special skill of excellence to make one. Thanks for that.

  3. Very nice, but $240 for that tool is way overpriced. Its two router bits (maybe $50 if you got really nice ones), and a hunk of plastic that couldn't have cost more than a couple of bucks to make.

  4. Nice Video but I prefer Tooltime with Tim Taylor, He has got the Best router man has created, The Binford 6000 Router Table, it will make Dovetails in 60sec.

  5. How can you call it a Dovetail jig if you only cut a dovetail on one board and the other one is a straight pin… doesn't make sense to me… the shape of your pins should not match the holes you cut out on the other board imo… it's like putting peas and strawberries together…

  6. SO HOW DO YOU CLEAN UP THE PINS THAT ARE TOO LONG? WHY DON'T YOU MEASURE THE PINS AND CUT THEM EXACTLY SO YOU DO NOT HAVE TO CLEAN UP PINS THAT ARE TOO LONG?
    I ENJOYED THIS VIDEO AND WILL LOOK AT MORE OF MORE YOUR VIDEOS…

  7. Thank you for the clear and precise instruction. I have always wanted add this to my skillset. Great work.

  8. Just a thought, could you set up an adjustable stop block on your jig to align the wood for both sides so you wouldn't need to find center or trace notches you could just flip it and use the associated stop block on the opposing side. understanding that the height of the board is the variable in the jig. not sure if that came through sensible

  9. Every negative comment that WOOD magazine replies to is followed by an apology and a more polite phrasing of original comment. Goes to show ppl’s toxicity is just a cry for attention.
