Product Details
A well-executed dovetail joint is the calling card of a skilled woodworker. Whether used to build tiny drawers in the gallery of an 18th-century highboy or to secure a family blanket chest, when you see dovetails, you know that the furniture was designed and built with care, by a maker who values building work that lasts lifetimes.The good news: Creating hand-cut dovetail joints is not nearly as difficult as you might think. In this class, Len Reinhardt walks you through the process step-by-step. Whether you go on to cut dovetails at the table saw, using a router, or using a combination of hand and machine tools, you should learn to cut them by hand first. Not only are hand-cut dovetails easier to cut than you probably imagine, but learning to cut them is also the best way to understand the intricacies of the joint.
