Dovetails remain the non pariel method of joining wood in the construction of boxes, drawers and cabinet carcases in solid wood. Hand-cut dovetails, to many, represent the epitome of the craft.
This workshop is offered as a one-day or two-day session — sign up for one or both days. A one-day experience will serve as an introduction to the topic — covering how to fine-tune the tools and the layout, sawing, chopping and paring of through dovetails — while two days of concentrated study and practice will take you deeper into the skills and the making of half-blind dovetails, if you choose.
Two-day workshop, 9:00a-5:00p daily
Fee: $160 for one day, $320 for two days (inc. materials)
