Well I received another magazine today and much to my surprise it has an
article on dovetails.!!!!!! Seems every mag just has to have one on this
subject every month. One last month said The Last Word on
dovetails.....wanna bet? I've done them and they are an artwork when done
right but I receive 5 mags and almost all have something on them each month.
PLEASE GIVE IT A REST(at least for a couple of months)
Relatively new wooddorker? You gotta realize that we're on the cusp of the
year/decade of the dovetail ... last two years/decades were the year/decade
of the "ultimate router table".
Watch the overlap, however ...
I receive a sub to Fine Wood Working as a birthday give every year, and
I'm ready to tell the person to forget it. While it was good the
first couple of years, the same stories and articles get recycled year
in and year out.
The pictures are pretty, but I'm kinda tired of everything else. I can
download plans for items I want, instead of what they want to show me,
and I can read up to date tool reviews online.
Hey, Man, Lighten UP!!!
They go to all that trouble publishing all those volumes for those who believe
in Prof. Harold
Hill's copyrighted "Think Method" (c) School of Dovetailing.
Rather than spend hours of time practicing and miscutting all that expensive
wood (plus think of all
the money you don't have to send to Rob Lee for jigs and stuff) you just take
all those magazines,
substitute them for your pillow, and using osmosis and the Think Method (c),
why, you're cutting
dovetails like a pro in no time.
Heres somthing new in dovetails
An online template generator. Play around with diferent wood
width~thickness and tail setouts and it draws an image so you can see
how the tails will look, and print it to use as template to cut
