Good morning everyone, released a day early because it's cold. So hopefully this sliding dovetail video motivates you to go into the shop and workup a sweat. The layout for this sliding dovetail is located in DEMO 24a on my channel (link in description). I am using primarily Chinese tools for this demonstration; links to how to make these tools yourself is also in the description. Enjoy.
