Subject:
quick dovetail Chinese style

Chris Scholz
Checking in with Xin Shifu on youku tonight.
Looks like he's been posting a bunch of videos.
Here's a link to a video cutting a dovetail by eyeballing. T
No marking out tails or pins, no special dovetail gauge, markers, dovetail chisels. Angle of the dovetails? 所谓, it does not matter.
his also answers the age old question what to cut first, pins or tails. Simply cut both essentially at the same time.
Enjoy!

(youku might make you go through one or two ads, it's worse than youtube)
