Learn How to Make Dovetails
Level:Open to All
Through out the centuries whenever two pieces of wood meet, joints were developed to hold them together and in this series of evening class you will learn how to do the most popular ones.
In this series of 4 classes, which can be taken as a group or on a individual basis, you will learn how to layout and precisely cut either a single joint such as a dovetail, or a group of joints that use a common set of cuts such as a the rabbet.
