Half-Blind Dovetails on Curved Parts

A few folks have asked me what I have been up to lately in the shop, so I decided to post a quick video blog, that I shot yesterday, before I head out for the long weekend.

Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!

Here is the video

Hey Brian
Great solution to a problem and most interesting project. you might note that some of what you were trying to show was off camera. I was also wondering what type of dovetail "machine" you were talking about? Far better than any video I've made,having never made one :)) thanks for sharing, your a great asset to Ljs

Jim, I was referring to the Leigh D4R dovetail Jig. I once saw one of the woodworking show hosts (I think it was Norm) refer to this as a "dovetail machine", as opposed to the dedicated half-blind dovtail jigs. I liked the distinction, this jig being so versatile, so I started referring to it as a dovetail "machine".

I did notice that I was off camera a bit. I am still debating about whether to (continue to) do these rather rough, impromptu video blogs, as opposed to the polished, edited videos . On the one hand, they are easy to make, taking just a few minutes (as opposed to a few hours), and there may be some useful nuggets of information. On the other hand, the refined videos set the bar to some degree. I also believe that when I put out a video, that I am asking folks to spend their valuable time to watch it-perhaps even their precious shop time! so I have to make it worth their while.

Hey Brian
I think the video was great. I think it was well worth my time. I know it takes time and planning to make a video so I and I'm sure many others appreciate your time investment. the reason I wanted to know what kind of dovetail jig you were using was to try a picture how you were installing your leveling wedges while routing.
I'm a little surprised the wedges that thick can fit in your leigh jig.

It fit, but barely! :)) If I remember correctly, it was right at the limit.

Happy Holidays!

Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the holiday seasons, so I thought I would whip up a little video bit in the wake of the Thanksgiving feast to wish everyone a happy holiday season.

Here is the video
Brian, that was a nice video. It looks like you are a wonderful cook as well as a fine woodworker. But I can appreciate the desire to get the holidays over so that we can get back into our normal routines.

Surviving the Brutal California Winter (humor)

It seems that every year we get a cold snap here in the San Francisco Bay Area, and I always like to take that opportunity do do something that I do not often get to do: complain about the weather!

And tomorrow we're supposed to reach a high of 29 (F)

You should move up to the Seattle area. That is about all we hear are complaints about the weather. It is either too cold, wet, hot, windy, cloudy, dry, flooding, mud slides, black ice and once in a great while it is way too bright out there. What is that glowing orb in the sky?

God help us when it gets down to 45 at night…. lol It almost snowed here in Sacramento as well. Think it got down to 23 last night. I hear the last time it snowed in Sacramento was 1976 and then the 1940s before that.

Don't look to us Eastern people for sympathy. Your cold weather is what we call Fall :)

I feel bad for you… but for another reason. A blizzard howling outside and a heated shop inside. Nothing like it. It actually makes you feel more like a craftsman for some reason. Maine here.
