    Nice work, Ron. Enjoyed your approach to the whole project. For fine detail cuts I use Dozuki, etc type of saws....they leave v. thin/fine cut. I hung around College of the Redwoods (Mendocino) woodworking program and learned a bunch from Krenov himself and his students.

    On occasion I noticed there is real life outside the GG/viewfinder.

    Thank you Leszek....must be great experience to follow a college in the Redwoods; was there on visit about 10 years ago and I still can remember the that wonderful wood smell!
    After I bought and used the Japanese Gents saw, my cuts became also much finer. It made me decide to start building again the back panel and the middle sliding box - the main panels' dovetails were already sawn with that Gents saw, so one could see the difference in finesse (the pins in between the tails of this little camera are only few mm wide and long).

    I bought this one which is 160mm long and has 28 tpi teeth:
