Best tools for hand-cut DOVETAILS
Please tell me, in your opinion, the best chisels and hand saws to buy for doing hand-cut dovetail work. I know many people have both Japanese and Lie-Nielsen type saws and chisels. For $35 you can't go wrong with the Japanese saws, but choosing the right chisel set is a tougher choice. Two Cherries or Blue Steel? Is Pfeil the best value? Also, there are chisels and there are dovetail chisels, I want to do strictly dovetail work.
I've been a woodworker for many years, but new to hand-cut dovetail work. My budget is about $150 to $200. Goal: tools that are accurate and will grow with me for many years.
Can you recommend a good video and book too?
Value your opinion, thanks!
