Laying out dovetails with the dividers
I grew up watching the Woodwright’s Shop on KET (local PBS station) and always loved the attitude the host, Roy Underhill, carried with him. Sometimes when you meet someone you are disappointed in how they really are but in this case I was NOT disappointed. Roy is a class act, a tremendous teacher, supremely likeable, and exactly how his demeanor is on the show. I couldn’t be more pleased saying I now know this gentleman and have learned so much from him. I spent the day learning hand-cut dovetails (through and half blind) and mortise-and-tenon joinery in his school shop in North Carolina and all I can say is if you have the opportunity to meet and/or learn from this master craftsman…DO IT. I’m looking forward to going back and learning even more.
The man in action.
Now THAT is a saw. What a character he is; such a likeable fellow.
