Hand Dovetail Joints

Co-sponsored by Eastern Mass. Guild of Woodworkers

A beautiful dovetail marks a skilled artisan. Dovetail joints elegantly interlock one board with another with great tensile strength. Hand-cut dovetails require care and precision for a snug fit, and add a lovely visual touch to furniture design. This is a perfect follow-up to Basic Woodworking, and appropriate for intermediate and advanced students. You will practice tool sharpening and create dovetails by hand. You won’t make a full piece of furniture in this workshop, but you can apply the skills you learn to your next project.
