    There's an application out there somewhere that uses tapered (pointed) cutters with the work at a shallow angle allowing a huge variety of conventional and unconventional dovetails to be cut on quite long workpieces.
    From what I recall it's capable of the forms you can only otherwise create with a saw & chisel, i.e. blind dovetails with sharp corners and flat bottoms in the pockets.

    But it does not make real dovetails joints.

    Cutting some hardwood samples to end up as website photos. African mahogany and flamed birch.
    Very clean cuts, and very tight fit.

    Hi Gerry
    Nice to see it up and running, i would just like to make a comment.
    I use an old Windows XP PC with Firefox Browser, when i go to your site i find it does not fit the size of my screen and i have to scroll left right to read it, don't know if it's a setting on my computer but it is a tad annoying. Other than that great job.

    Mike, what's your screen resolution set to? Gerry's site displays perfectly on my screen with IE11.

    I made a decision to make the width of the screen 1200 pixels wide, assuming that it would work on just about any screen these days.
    Don't make assumptions.
    I found after it was done that it doesn't fit on an Ipad2 either.

    I doubt that I'll change it to accommodate a small percentage of people with old PC's.
