Event description

Description

Among the methods of joinery dovetails are ancient. Early examples of the dovetail joint date back to ancient Egypt during the First Dynasty, as well as examples found in the tombs of early Chinese emperors. Dovetails are among the strongest joints used in constructing furniture, boxes and drawers. But to many woodworkers they seem difficult. This class will clear up this misconception. In this class you will learn Rockler’s foolproof method for making half-blind dovetail joints that are strong, attractive and repeatable. Success with dovetail construction follows from a checklist of tasks that eliminates errors and results in a successful box or drawer project. You will learn how to use Rockler’s popular dovetail jig along with the Rockler method that together will allow you to create handsome dovetails with confidence in your next joinery project. This class will be taught by Reed Carpenter, one of our Associates at Rockler’s Burnsville store.
