Just the videos I've been looking for to learn hand cut joinery.

The Wood Yogi says:

This series of videos will become a fantastic resource for beginners in the future Mitch 🙂 Great job ॐ

Robert Amsbury says:

Nice vid Mitch. I'm not sure if I've seen anyone else show these by hand – it's all sleds on table saws. Not sure why in hindsight as it's obviously so, but I was struck by how similar the method is to through dovetails.

Günter Schöne says:

Nice video, Mitch.
The finger joints look fabulous.
By the pencil, I have a 0.5mm print refill pencil.
Either I take the pencil or my marking knife.

The two boards where you made the finger prongs.
You can take that as a book support. 🙂
Did you do the shoji yourself??? 😀 😀
I'm thinking of making a lamp out of Shoji. But may I tinker devices suitable for planing yet.

Wait a minute! How did you manage to get the second cut board to stick to first when you pulled them apart? Check about 1:50… nice
