This morning I spent some time outside practicing cutting dovetails. I'm really enjoying the folding workbench. Not having a vise is actually kind of fun and I'm looking forward to trying out more of the work-holding solutions on Steve Branam's blog. Working outside is very enjoyable too (as long as the weather is nice). An added bonus is that it forces you to put your tools away when you're done, so the "workshop" is never a mess.
