Great video! I think those watching need to understand that there are many techniques for cutting dovetails by hand. What Matt is showing us is the way HE does it. That doesn't mean another way is wrong and it's always good to look at different alternatives. Even if you don't do it exactly as he did, there are great tips and techniques for handling a chisel that you can use in other situations.
I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the series and then starting to plan my own version of the toolbox.
Another lovely piece Mike! I wish I was able to take that class at Connecticut Valley.
I'm signed up for the class to make the entry table at Marc Adams' this summer and I'm looking forward to it. I was out today looking for a supply of white oak so I can start preparations.
Amen to that Alex! I also wish there was a local community workshop in the Baltimore area. Driving all the way the The Woodworkers Club in Rockville is not a good option, given the price of membership. As retired military, I used to use the very nice workshop on Fort George G. Meade, but it closed a couple of years ago because of "budget cuts." It still sits there, unused. What a waste!
The tool box looks great! I hope to see it fully finished and up close when I take your class out at Marc Adam's school this summer. I've been thinking of building one of my own and I'm always looking for good ideas to steal from others.
I think most the others have already listed everything I would have mentioned.
