In this class you will receive instruction on layout, cutting, and chopping techniques and tools used for constructing hand cut dovetail joinery. The dovetail is the strongest and most utilitarian mechanical corner joint used in woodworking. All tools and materials will be provided for use in this class, however if you have your own dovetail saw, coping/jewelers saw, chisels, scribe or marking knife then feel free to bring your own. By the end of this class you will create one through dovetail joint and one half-blind dovetail joint along with learning some tricks to speed up the process.
