Re: How to Make a Drawbored Mortise and Tenon Joint

Hi Mike. I got the chance to meet you this past weekend at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking with Bob Van Dyke while taking a course there and it was an honor. Like you said, you are just regular guys but to a woodworking novice it is still a treat. Now, as I mentioned to you, it would be really great if you were able to teach a class there making that hayrake table. I really enjoyed the video but believe at this stage in my woodworking life, would need some tutoring. Let us know via the CVSW website if you are ever able to do that. Thanks.
