Making hand-cut dovetails is a real
pleasure when the right tools are used.
Consider for example dovetails on this
photo. They are double curved because both
boards are curved. This is an unusual
joint and it was made with the Adria
dovetail saw featured here.
Making these dovetails using power tools
would be a challenge because of the
geometry of the pins. Note that the angle
between the vertical side of the pin and
the bottom of the recess for tails is
different on each side of the pin.
To do this with a router, one would need
two different router bits, each with a
different angle of cut, a custom made jig,
lot of time spent.
The beauty of making these dovetails
with a dovetail saw is that you just mark
There are many other benefits of making
dovetails using a quality dovetail saw.
In addition to the pleasure of developing
a real skill, making hand cut dovetails is
quiet, relaxing and safe. There is no
noise, dust and you get to keep all your
You can listen to your favorite music. If
you have small kids they get to play
around while you cut wood. I keep my
workbench in the living room and I'm
present at all times. Making dovetails by
hand can just be so convenient.
Time is not an issue because unless one
does production quantities, typical
hobbyist has plenty of time and is not
limited by deadlines. Hand-cut dovetails
become surprisingly fast once enough
practice has been done, so this makes time
even less of an issue.
Now a little bit about this beautiful
dovetail saw that I make:
This saw will cut very aggressively
because of the precise sharpening. I do a
test cut with every saw before it is
shipped and I make sure that it cuts
flawlessly. The saw that you receive will
cut fast, track straight and leave thin
A lot of attention has been paid to the
design of the handle. This handle fits to
your hand like a glove. The handle is made
out of Bubinga and has a pleasant
The combination of exotic wood handle and
brass back makes this saw look very
attractive. You know my saws are looking
good when that woman (who wasn't a
woodworker) picked up my dovetail saw and
this is a piece of art!
This makes it easier to justify the
purchase of this saw to all male
woodworkers who are having trouble with
obtaining their SWMBO's (she who must be
obeyed) approval. Just say - honey, I'm
getting a piece of art! You can be sure
she will be pleasantly surprised once you
place this saw in her hands. I have
seriously heard this comment from a number
of my satisfied clients.
Don't think that this dovetail saw is
supposed to be used only for dovetails.
This is an excellent all purpose saw
useful for all kinds of precise cuts. It
can be used for cutting tenons, even
cross-cutting smaller boards. Despite
being sharpened rip, it will make fine
crosscuts because of the fine, relatively
This saw is a marriage of good
performance and elegant form. It is
meticulously finished and made to high
quality standards. As I make these saws on
a part-time basis, the quantities are
limited and it may happen that I'll have
to put you on a waiting list.
I'm trying to keep the waiting period as
short as possible, but to be on a safe
side, order early and don't lose your spot
to someone else. To order , please send me
and I will let you know the details.

"The Adria Tools
dovetail saw is a pleasure to use. The
traditional handle fits comfortably in
your hand. The hefty brass back keeps
the blade rock stable and the rip teeth
are sharpened to perfection. I recommend
this saw" -- Sam Allen
