We’ve added a new dovetail class to the calendar on Saturday, October 19, 2019.
In this one day class, Charles Murray, walks students through the process of laying out, cutting, and assembling of through, half blind and tapered dovetails by hand. Dovetails are commonly a measure of quality construction, and hand cut dovetails usually stand out above machine dovetails in aesthetics.While the steps involved are basic (squaring stock, layout, sawing, chopping), the woodworker needs to understand the anatomy of the joint in order to coordinate each operation with the next. Charles can help you diagnose problems before they turn into bad habits, helping you lay a strong foundation for learning and improving your dovetails.
More details on the class, including prerequisites and a tool list, can be found on the Hand Cut Dovetails registration page.
