    Yeah Larry, do tell. I wanna see you post a video afterwards with your 3 minute dovetail...

    Just kidding ya! I saw Rob do a demo some 4-5 years ago and he blew me away the first time he tapped a dovetail home without doing a test-fit. The guy is amazing.

    ...art

    ps: might work on a drawer or two myself this weekend, but with a "small drawer lock bit" that I've been playing with, rather than dovetails. Also need to help son #2 get his pinewood car finished up (epoxy in the weights), and then painting all three of the kids cars. (they'll be painting, not me!)

    well i got roped into allowing the use of my shop in the making of one of those things and it was a disappointing experience for me..the dad did the work and even after i mentioned several times it was the kids job.. the kid had no interest at all,, rather play video games on his hand held gaming thing

    as for the vidoe, i think not.. just gonna try and learn something,, maybe i am not to old yet for that process
