Many excellent woodworking videos. I stumbled on this link for this site on Reddit.com, from a posted link on creating a solar furnace from coke cans (that garage gets cold in the winter). Once I found the tool stuff, this is the first video that caught my eye: Cutting Inlayed Dovetails using the Leigh D4, by Al Navas I have a D4, but haven’t tried doing anything fancy yet, but maybe at lunchtime….
