April meeting had two dovetail demonstrations. Brian Rickenbacker showed how to do hand cut dovetails and John Ragland showed router cut dovetails using a Leigh jig.

Brian was able to do a decent dovetail in very little time, obviously he has done it a lot before, but it seems to be a fairly straightforward procedure.

John showed us the setup and cutting using the Leigh jig. There seems to be a little learning curve and some setup but once ready to go the cuts are easy.
