  1. I did this for the first time last week, using a mitre saw and a chisel. My joint was 10x cleaner and I did it 10x quicker. What's the point in saying "more relief cuts makes it easier to take out" and then just doing a few? I could literally break the slices out with my fingers, and then just run a chisel across the bottom to clean it up. As someone else mentioned, the end product of this video seems incredibly inaccurate and poorly finished, particularly for someone who has (I presume) been doing this a long time.

    I can't say those bench dogs were much use either, that workpiece was moving about all over the place.
