Here are results and feedback from Rob Cosman students:
“In my 18 years as a University Professor, I have seldom met a better teacher. In less than two days, I went from never having held a dovetail saw to creating half-blind dovetails with confidence. Rob Cosman’s ability to share his knowledge is extraordinary.”
Herbert Maschner, PhD, Boise, Idaho Woodcraft
“I attended the dovetail class Rob taught in Greenville on October 29th and 30th. I was extremely impressed with the level of instruction. I have your dovetail DVD and Hand-Cut Dovetails Shop Copy Manual which I had viewed and read prior to attending the class, both of which are a good investment. I also have Rob’s dovetail saw which is the tool that is the key to making quality dovetails. I am a machinist by trade and have learned that if you want to do anything quality, it starts with the tools you use to do the job. Your dovetail saw is a top quality tool and worth every dollar you charge for it. With that said I want to go back to my opening statement and touch on the level of instruction Rob gives to his students. Prior to attending Rob’s class, I made two attempts at home to cut through dovetails both with frustrating results. With your instruction my 5th attempt showed enough promise that I began to feel confident about acquiring the skill necessary to cut really good dovetails by hand. Toward the end of the class Rob asked us to cut one final through dovetail, which was the 8th dovetail I had cut in my life. When I had it completed, I knew you had taught me to make a dovetail joint that I would be proud to show to anyone. I want to thank you for sharing your knowledge and coaching me to attain the skills necessary to make quality hand cut dovetails. If anyone asks about making quality dovetails I will tell them it’s all about the saw.”
