how can you own a $200 fret saw and still think its called a coping saw?

Barking Shark says:

Or0s says:

Dave you are little bit too slow, he-he, the jig is slowing you down, look at this vid for a 3-Minute Dovetails

grim8118 says:

Using a coping saw is pretty pointless. Just use a chisel because you're going to remove it exactly the same. I would only use a coping saw if you had fairly large dovetails.

LordSear1982 says:

Very good demonstration!

Philip Quinn says:

I'll never get tired of watching dovetails videos, do a bandsaw version please

ken beattie says:

So the hard part is planning/layout, and all the rest is de tails… And pins. Love the explanation, Dave.

Whiskey Wood Creations says:

Awesome quick rundown David, good insights man! Cheers

meathelmet41 says:

Oh well off to a Mudhens game instead

Briar Fox says:

I use the DR4 Pro. Yes. I spent a lot of money but it kicks ass. I love it!

CaesarTheCzar says:

For building a wooden toolbox that would most likely have to withstand the Texas heat, what would be the best way to joint it? I was told to try biscuits. Think that might work?

meathelmet41 says:

Any meet and greets in the near future? I need an excuse to go out for a cold one and I live in the 419.

D Gramsz says:

Which jig was used? 6:1 or 8:1 in the video?

Sebastiaan Mollema says:

All the important steps are there, even with or without the jig!

Thomas Babcock says:

Have not tried dovetails yet.
