Hi Dave. Welcome to our little corner of the 'net.


Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

This one done on the router table on sled that won't bend.
Tearout managed with edge clamped stock.
Both faces cut at 1/2 thickness with a .75D x 14° dovetail bit.

Hi Dave,

Half laps using a router are easy to demonstrate, but harder to explain.

Two DVDs that show easy ways to do this are:

Router Joinery by Gary Rogowski

The Versatile Router by Pat Warner.

If you intend to cut a number of joints, I would recommend a jig of some sort.

Sydney, Australia

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.
I don't profess to know everything, and I may learn something new.
