AUSTRALIAN WOOD REVIEW April 2015. ’The 372 saw worked brilliantly, I also tried other saws both Japanese and Western and still achieved good results. Using the 1:7 dovetail guide and the 90 degree guide enabled me to easily saw tight dovetails. These jigs are highly recommended.’ Raf Nathan.
GOOD WOODWORKING September 2014. ’David Barron’s cutting gauge is light and easy to control, as well as excellently made. It’s a classy and tactile tool to use.’ Andy King.
CANADIAN WOODWORKING. May 2014. ’The most effective and easiest way to cut perfect dovetails! The dovetail guide is a fabulous accessory that every woodworker who aspires to cut perfect dovetails should own’ Carl Duguay. See full article here https://www.canadianwoodworking.com/barron-dovetail-guide
CANADIAN WOODWORKING May 2014. ’If you’re new (or relatively new) to dovetails and have one of David’s guides, then I would highly recommend David’s 40 minute DVD on hand cutting dovetails. Even if you don’t have a guide you’ll still benefit from the DVD, it’s like being in the workshop with him. The presentation is clear and concise and the camera work is first rate. This is possibly the best DVD on hand cutting dovetails.’ Carl Duguay.
HOLZWERKEN (Germany) July 2014. ’The cuts (with the dovetail guide) were always spot on, straight and at the correct angle. You get almost perfect dovetails the first time.’

GOOD WOODWORKING November 2012. ’David Barron’s mini smoother is beautifully made and sharp out of the box. You’ll find that the cut is on a par with premium metal bodied planes, while that curvaceous and beautifully grained body makes it much more pleasurable to use.’ Andy King.
GOOD WOODWORKING March 2012. ’There can only be so many DVD’s on how to tune a metal hand plane, but David’s DVD ’Success With Bench Planes’ takes it one step further, with a range of tips on hand planing. This is an interesting DVD containing great tips for using as well setting up a standard hand plane.’ Andy King.
FURNITURE & CABINETMAKING December 2011. ’In David’s latest DVD, ’Success With Bench Planes’ he not only share his thoughts on fine tuning a 100 year old plane but puts it to great use in a series of work shop tips that will undoubtedly advance your hand planing technique. Ever struggled to get a perfect edge joint or questioned the need for a shooting board? Well the answers lie within this DVD.’ Derek Jones.
GOOD WOODWORKING October 2011. ’Once I’d mastered the alignment I found that the (dovetail) joints could be made to fit very well and at a pretty speedy pace.’ Andy King.
FURNITURE & CABINETMAKING September 2011. In a nicely shot DVD David manages to capture the basics and combine them with plenty of tips to get you on your way. You’ll discover how to make some of the tools and jigs he uses in the film. There’s more than a hint of realism about his matter of fact approach that will have you cutting perfect dovetails straight from the saw, with a bit of practice of course.’ Derek Jones.
FURNITURE & CABINETMAKING October 2010. ’David Barron’s alignment board is an amalgamation of designs, combining versatility with accuracy’ Derek Jones.
