This video now includes a lot of instruction on the preparatory skills needed to make hand-cut dovetails. Skills such as how to sharpen your chisels, how to choose the correct dovetail saw, what are the components of a good sharpening kit, etc. Rob also includes a lot of additional technique tips and exercises that were not in the original video.

Honestly I think that you should stop selling this video. Reorganize, reevaluate and reissue this “hand-cut dovetails” video.
excellent in breaking down each step
Rob is a great instructor and teaches in an easy to follow and understand method. If you are going to learn to cut dovetails, you may as well learn from the best.
The videos are excellent help and proper training.
Hand-Cut Dovetails 2.0
Really helpful to an old sawdust maker who never before had the courage to try dovetails! Rob is right that it takes a lot of practice, and I'm still practicing with offcuts from other projects. I've watched the video several times and still go back to it. His tips on layout, lining up the saw, etc. are terrific. His whimsical sense of humor puts the right mood on this right-brain experience. It's comforting to know that, because he lays out the pins directly from the tails, it doesn't matter if I'm off a millimeter or so; they match anyway.
