English Dovetails and a New Blog


English craftsman David Barron sent us an email a bit ago announcing his new blog, which you can see here.

David uses a Glide Leg Vise in his joinery bench, and in the video above to demonstrate his method for cutting through dovetails (which is simply fantastic in our opinion, especially for beginners). Our favorite moment is right at the 7:00 mark where he gives the wheel a little flick (chisel in hand no less!) to close the vise.

Make sure you check out the lovely tools David is making, here.

  1. Most, if not all, of the tools he makes and sells are also described in how-to-make-one-for-yourself articles that he's written for Furniture & Cabinetmaking magazine.
