    Man o man Ryan, you make good stuff

    These are like my fancy carving knives that I only use on very special occasions and never ever let anyone else use them.

    I did have to try them out though. I had to lay out some mortises on a Christmas gift for a friend.

    I'm almost tempted to try my hand again at dovetails

    Thanks Bob, if you're happy, I'm happy!

    I was definitely using this as an excuse to learn and try new things so imho in the long run I'm the real winner here I do kind of enjoy making tools, its sort of the best of all worlds for me.

    In that light, definitely do give the dovetails another shot - a dozen or so in they start getting to be not to bad. Take some scraps and just keep cutting the dovetails off and re-doing them until they look reasonable (or some facsimile of reasonable in my case ). And please do remember that little wedges work wonders for filling the gaps, especially in darker wood like walnut, why its almost like they weren't even there
