  1. Hi Matt
    I really enjoyed your video on how you dovetail, nice job. I admire your skill set, especially since you haven’t done this that many years. Your a natural, keep up the great work my friend.

  2. Great video! Great shop! I just found your site and think it’s fantastic. After finally getting to hanging the rest of the drywall in one portion of my studio/shop I noticed how much brighter the space was. I would paint those foam panels on your door and enjoy the free light!
