It's to bad I saw a lot of potential in this magazine, top quality paper and beautiful layout. It was canceled before I even new it existed. I walked into the Lee Valley Tools store in Ottawa one day, and quickly grabbed the last 6 issues they had on the shelf.
Here is an article on classic hand cut dovetails from the 1st issue. I have posted articles on dovetails before, Ed Deak, author of this article, outlines his method of producing quicker and tighter handcut dovetails.
There are some who will go out of their way to figure out how to use a power tool for an operation, without ever considering a hand tool. Something is lost without that close contact, ha, ha. My grade 9 shop teacher required that we cut a passable dovetail joint, joining the ends of two short pieces of 1 X 4's, before we were allowed to turn on the power tools.
Even Norm Abram has been caught using hand tools.
Of course he has also been caught assembling chairs with framing nail guns, lol.
Not taking anything away from Norm, he is a pro, part of the job to keep the show going, was to sell power tools.
