After watching Frank Klausz cut a set of dovetails in three minutes using a special bowsaw blade (see the video here in our video section), Rob Cosman decided to show that it can be done by cutting the tails first. (Frank cuts his pins first.)
For those who don’t know Cosman, he has produced a series of great videos on hand joinery and has a new companion book on dovetailing that we highly recommend. It’s spiral bound for the shop and is the best book I’ve ever read on cutting this traditional joint. You can read more about his videos, book and tools at RobCosman.com.
