8-minute box video Part 2 of 4

The box video wasn’t so much a finished video but more to show how I can cut four dovetails in 8 minute dovetailing the corners of a box.

Part 2 of 4 shows the 3-minute roundover for the lid or bottom of the box using only a 4 1/2 smoother. I doubt whether a router is faster or cleaner or neater off the cuff and I have no need for dust masks ear protection or eye protection either.

Hope that you enjoy!

    I notice your adjustment wheel spins very easily. Most of my planes have very stiff adjustment wheels, so that I tend not to change the depth of cut much. What do you do to get easy movement? Is it a matter of lubricating the threads, easing off the lever cap screw to reduce the pressure, or some modification to the mechanism?

    The absolute best thing about your videos online and on DVD is the very evident joy you take in your work.
