    Making a (Very) Small Dovetail Saw Making a (Very) Small Dovetail Saw I recently restored this 1840-ish British 10" dovetail saw made by Richard Groves & Sons. I like the saw so much that I decided to make a copy of it. I've made quite a few saws, but I've never made one like this before...

    I know this can't be the smallest ever. But I was pretty proud of them cause they basically came to a point on the outside edge and they all came out perfect with almost zero gaps, in quarter-sawn white oak of all woods.
