    Thank you Mr.Vondriska. I have dovetail jig for years but never use it due to the fact the manual instructions weren’t clear to me. Now, I have a great idea. Now, I need to figure out how to work with the guide and the router base. I do have a Castman router (I know), But for a bigginer it is enough. Great teaching. I will be looking foward for more on router classes. It is a wonderful tool.
