Re: Paul Sellers dovetail video.......

Absolutely.....like any good magician, Mr. Sellers is controlling as many factors in his demonstration as he can.....certainly, the wood is easy to work and offers little resistance to being cut.....and, if you noticed, he did not hand over his dovetail for inspection by crowd members but rather held on to it and showed the side he wanted seen (probably did slightly bevel that waste cut with the copying saw to insure a fit off the saw).

Still, in all.....its impressive.....and with a minimum of tools. Its the skills baby!!.....as I look at my LV catalog to figure out what I "need" next.
