One of the things I like about being an editor at Fine Woodworking is that every article I edit is like a one-on-one woodworking class.When it comes to articles that demonstrate a technique, I always head out to the shop and try out the technique several times.
It helps me to better understand what the author is telling me and to get that across in the article.So, when I was editing Stephen Hammer's article 'Half-Blind Dovetails in Half the Time,' I was out in the shop giving it a go.
The technique is great.An insanely simply jig lets you cut perfectly symmetrical tails at the bandsaw that are indistinguishable from handcut tails.Another clever jig holds the pin board vertically, so that you can rout out the waste between the pins.
There's almost no paring to do afterward.I love cutting dovetails by hand, but I must admit that nowadays when I cut dovetails its almost always Hammer time for me...
