If this crew will be doing a lot of these Hybrid Timber-Frame houses, I would suggest that they invest in a Ligna-Tool Dovetail cutting guide [http://www.lignatool.at/en/schwalbenschwanz.html]. Using a router, this would produce a perfect dovetail joint w/o all the circular saw bevel cutting & chiseling. Ligna-Tool also makes self-aligning cutting jigs for end straight & bevel cuts on beams including compounds.
