Listener Questions, Email, and Comments
Adam – Hello again fellas! I know there are plenty of articles on this topic, but I wanted to get an opinion from “you’s guys” on this: English Style Push saw or Japanese Style Pull saw for dovetails? Or something different altogether. I’m a beginner (zero cuts given) when it comes to dovetails. Plus, I don’t have any equipment to sharpen my own tools (yet). As a beginner, what route should I go? Also, is something like David Barron’s magnetic dovetail guide worth looking into or just a gimmick?
A good forum entry can be found here.
Jonathan – Gentlemen,
wnaziri – 5 Stars – Great Pod – I’ve enjoyed listening to every episode since the beginning. To podcast has improved significantly since the first episode. A special note: I have come to really appreciate the humanity of the 3 amigos. We have a professional woodworker, a semi-pro woodworker, and a stay-at-home loving father of 4 kids. I am proud to have something in common with them. Keep the episodes coming, please. Wade N (italics are our correction)
chrisXjacobsen – 5 Stars – TDL Haiku – A new woodworker, Loves listening to you guys, Just got a wood lathe.
